Chapter 8. Basic Tasks: Use Layout Tools > Use guides to align an object

Use guides to align an object

You can use rulers and guides to precisely position or align objects in your document. You’ll add guides to help you center the block of text.

1.
Select View > Rulers.

A horizontal and vertical ruler appear above and to the left of the Stage.

2.
Click anywhere in the horizontal ruler and drag down until you reach the 250-pixel horizontal position.

3.
Click anywhere in the vertical ruler and drag left until you reach the 375-pixel vertical position.

4.
Ensure that you have Snap to Guides turned on by selecting View > Snapping > Snap to Guides.

5.
In the Tools panel, click the Selection tool.

6.
On the Stage, click inside the upper-left corner of the blue text border and drag it to the intersection of the two guides.

A small circle appears in the upper-left corner of the text border when you drag near the corner of the text border. The circle indicates that snapping is engaged.

7.
If you want to remove the guides, select View > Guides > Clear Guides.
