Hello all - I seem to have a problem getting grids to work properly. My artboard is 297 x 210mm. If you look at the first image and note the spacing of the 2nd axis, it's 10mm which into 210mm is equally divided. If I then add to the1st axis a spacing of 148.5 (second image) the grid shifts. If I divid the 1st axis further, it keeps shifting (image 3). What the hell is going on / have I missed? Thanks
Total noob question I think. I purchased yesterday some "layouts" which looked kind of cool. The sales letter mentioned that they can be used with any software that uses "layers". Unfortunately I have not got a clue as to how to implement them into my design which alas sits just inside my head at moment... Any suggestion as to how to use them would be great!!!
One of the biggest friction points for me right now is setting up layouts. There are a number of flaws/bugs with the current implementation of guides that make it incredibly difficult/frustrating to set up a layout and begin working on an actual design. Since that is usually step 1, I've found myself quitting the application and jumping back to Adobe before I even get a chance to test out the majority of the software. The two biggest issues for me are: Guides do not display x/y coordinates anywhere while being drawn. If guide is released and then moved, coordinates are displayed in a red tooltip. This means in order to accurately place my guides I need to draw them once, then move them. Guides do not snap to whole pixels. I'm constantly struggling to get my guide aligned with a whole pixel, but keep getting stuck above or below my target by a few tenths of a pixel (i.e. 149.8, 150.1, instead of 150px). In addition, the ability to automate some guide/layout functions would be invaluable. In particular, setting up columns and gutters for the 960 grid (http://960.gs). There are also core iOS/Android layouts that could be included too (actionbars, sidebars, etc).
