Guide Manager with Columns and Rows

Recommended Posts

Would be great to be able to create guides within the Guide Manager based on number of columns, rows and gap size. Scribus has implemented that feature in a very nice way (see picture below).

Any chance that this could be implemented in Affinity Publisher?

Just what I was about to suggest Phonsman, though I am not familiar with Scribus.

What would be really nice (my way of saying essential) was if columns & rows setup was in the new document dialogue box. Most of my work is print based and I need a grid (not that graph paper thing, a proper grid) for laying out the pages... from the start. One of the other posts seemed to suggest making a multiude of templates with variations of guides and margins for a range of page sizes; this is not an acceptable answer.

The lack of setting a grid from the beginning is seriously going to impede my workflow, and would in fact, be a deal-breaker. I have been looking forward to Publisher's arrival, want to quit InDesign, but...

One last thing, if you (Affinity) do adopt Phonsman's suggestion, please use the word 'gutter' not 'gap'.
