Grids and guides 960 and 1200

Recommended Posts

Hi all I design websites frequently and use bootstrap as my framework for coding. I use a 12 column layout for website and was wondering if there was a way to create grids that work for each art board like I can in photoshop yet or has this still not happened. I notice there is a guide creator however it is not very easy to use to make this sort of grid with gutters and margins etc. ?

There will be some improvements to Guides coming soon.  I plan to look into automatic creation of common guide sets like this.

I can't even delete guides normally.

If you are having problems dragging guides off the canvas to delete them, try using the Guides Manager (on the View menu). Select the guide from the list & click on the trash can icon to delete it.

Hi, Guides options that I need:


- being able to rotate guides(!), place rotated in the first place, or modify them as objects

- being able to transform any shape into guides, so this will be snapping to, but will not snap to any other objects on page

- guides created on seperate layer, with option to quickly show/hide them, without deleting them(!)
