Working with Guides

Once the rulers are visible, you can use them to create guides on your page. Guides can be used to divide pages into different areas as well as to help you align objects.

To create guides by dragging:

1.
Choose View > Guides > Show. (If Show is checked, the command is selected.)

2.
Move your pointer so that it touches either the top (horizontal) ruler or the left (vertical) ruler.

3.
For a horizontal guide, press and drag the arrow from the top ruler down into the page 12.

Figure 12. To create a horizontal guide, place your pointer on the top ruler and drag down into the page area.


or

For a vertical guide, press and drag the arrow from the left ruler onto the page 13.

Figure 13. To make a vertical guide, place your pointer on the left ruler and drag to the right.


TIP

Drag your arrow from the ruler onto the page, not the pasteboard.

TIP

As you drag from the rulers a line appears that shows where your guide will be when you release the mouse.

4.
Release the mouse to set the guide.

TIP

To turn a path into a guide, you need to place the path on the Guides layer (see page 156).
