Working with guidelines

Guidelines are lines that you can place anywhere in the Drawing Window to help you align and position objects. You can create any number of Horizontal, Vertical, and Slanted guidelines and save them with your drawing. You can also enable snapping to guidelines so that objects automatically align with the guidelines when moved or drawn nearby.

Use guidelines to help you create, align, and position objects in the Drawing Window.

Use guidelines to help you create, align, and position objects in the Drawing Window.

You can select, rotate, nudge, duplicate, and delete guidelines as you would other objects. You can choose any color for your guidelines, but selected guidelines always appear red. You can also hide the guideline layer using the Object Manager. For information about the Object Manager, see "Using the Object Manager" on page 186.

By default, guidelines do not appear in printed copies of your work. If you want to print guidelines, you can do using the Object Manager. For more information, see "Enabling and disabling the printing of a layer" on page 197.
