Chapter 3. Showing and Hiding Page Elements > Show and Hide Page Properties

Show and Hide Page Properties

Like XPress, InDesign lets you show and hide your page guides and ruler guides (see Chapters 34 and 35 for more on these sorts of guides) with a single command: Show/Hide Guides from the View menu (or press Command-;/Ctrl-;). However, while this command in XPress hides or shows all page properties, this command only hides or shows the ruler and page guides. InDesign lets you hide or show other page properties, too, such as frame edges, baseline grid, and even master page items.

Frame Edges

XPress users aren’t used to hiding the edges of text and picture boxes as a separate step from hiding guides. But after becoming acclimated to this, you’ll find that it’s a very powerful tool. For instance, by using the Hide Frame Edges command from the View menu (Command-H/Ctrl-H), you can often better position an item near a guide without the frame interfering with the view. Note that this keyboard shortcut is the same as Hide Selection in Photoshop.
