Lesson 1. FreeHand Basics > Moving the Guides

Moving the Guides

Your next task is to draw the circles for the camera lens. Look at the guides on the page. Remember that you placed them on the page to help you position objects as you draw them. By using Alt-drag or Option-drag to draw from the center, you centered the rectangles on the guides. The lens for the camera consists of three circles. Using that same technique, you can draw the three circles so they are aligned to each other as well.

The problem is that the interior rectangle is filled with black, making the intersection of the guides hard to see. By default, the guides are placed underneath the objects on the page. Normally, that is where you want them since they are less distracting that way. However, there are times when you will want to bring them to the front to make them easier to see.
