How to set the point of origin (zero) with guides

Recommended Posts

When you drag guides into your document, sometimes you want to reset the origin of the measurements to align it with one guide, or with an intersection. In Photoshop, you do this by dragging from the small square that's at the origin of the rulers, but when I do rthis in Affinity, it doesn't work.

How can I reset the origin of my measurements to somewhere within my document, based on guides I have created?

Many thanks in advance.

It's available in the Publisher beta, which is part of the 1.7 version of the Affinity products. The 1.7 beta versions of Photo and Designer should be available soon, and perhaps they'll also include this.
