guides across art-boards, possible?

Recommended Posts

I like to be able to line up elements across multiple art-boards in AD. Within an art-boards, guides help do that. But guides don't extent across art-boards as far as I can tell.  If they do, how can I engage that 'mode'. If they don't, what are your recommendations for quick and precise alignment of graphics?

ok, to answer my own question - in part; I noticed that I shapes do show across art-boards although they only belong to one of the art-boards. So I use two rectangles to draw from art-board A to art-board B. Then a copy of that rectangle so it sits on top of the first one but now running from art-board B to A. This way I it appears as one 'bar' in two art-boards. Moving these up/down, left/right, allows me to align my art work in the boards.

 

A bit cumbersome, a bit silly, but it works. Any better ways?
