Column Guides on document preset.

Recommended Posts

We produce several hundred pages each week of the same size with the same columns (newspaper pages).

I've made a custom sized page and created a preset but I can't see any way of applying column guides to the preset.

Am I missing something or can you not have column guides on a custom page (preset)?

Guides are something you add to a page, not a property of a preset. Presets don't have anything except a page size, color space, margins, and other items related to the physical aspects of the document.

When Publisher 1.8 becomes available it will have a template feature, which will let you save a pre-formatted document as a template for reuse, and select that template when you're creating a new document. That is perhaps what you're looking for.

Until then, you might consider saving one of your empty documents somewhere, marking it Read-Only (Windows, Mac) or as a template (Mac), and instead of using File > New and picking your preset you can use File > Open, choose your presaved file, and then Save As under a new name. Then do your work on it.

It's rather charmingly called a 'Stationery Pad' :)
