Chapter 2. The View: Viewing, Doing, Und... > Lock a Guide to an Object

Lock a Guide to an Object

If you want to have a guide that is locked to an object so that the guide moves with that object, here’s the secret. Create and position a path that you’ll use as the guide with either the Pen tool (P) or Line tool (\). Select the path and the other object(s) and press Command-G (PC: Control-G) to group all the objects together. Deselect everything (Command-Shift-A [PC: Control-Shift-A]), and then use the Direct Selection tool (A) to select only the path that you want as a guide. Press Command-5 (PC: Control-5) to convert the path to a guide. From then on, the guide will move with the group.
