Text frame tool and guide lines


Recommended Posts

The text frame tool switches to the guide line tool as it approaches a guide line.  I can click out of the text frame and use the handles to resize the frame to fit the desired area within the guidelines, but I find it slightly irritating that I can't just create the text frame to the exact size I want without doing this.

Hi Dutchshader.  Thanks for the reply and appreciate the advice.  What I hadn't made clear was that I wanted to keep the guidelines on so that I can size the text frame to them.  Hence it is frustrating when the frame tool switches to the guideline tool as I approach the guideline.

Press the Ctrl key while dragging, or click on the "Enable Guides Editing" button in the toolbar image.png.50dfffd21a9ee042609f82436fdd41a6.png.
