Part 4: Building Documents > Grids and Guides

17. Grids and Guides

At first glance, InDesign’s ruler guides work in much the same way they do in many other programs. You can simply pull a guide from the vertical or horizontal ruler and drag it onto the page. Ruler guides that are dragged and released over the page appear only on the page, while guides released with the mouse over the pasteboard extend over both the page and the pasteboard—across all pages in a spread.

However, InDesign’s ruler guides act just like page elements, so you can select one or more guides at a time, copy and paste them, and even position selected guides numerically using the Control or Transform palettes. Guides, like any other object, can be placed on a layer. As with all other objects, a guide belongs to the layer that was active when you create it.
