Column guide calculator tool

Recommended Posts

I have made a numbers spreadsheet which calculates column widths for creating guides using the guide manager as a short term fix until the feature is implemented.

Currently it works for 2-6 columns. I think that should work for most people's uses but it would be fairly trivial to edit to allow for more columns.

You have to input some key data for each layout: 

  • Page width (crucial info for obvious reasons)
  • Inner margin
  • Outer margin (these three together then calculate the useable width within the margins)
  • Number of columns you require (up to max 6)
  • Gutter width

I thought it would be helpful to others so you can download using the link below. Please use and edit it as you wish.
