Graphicaly organising your page ?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone..
I just try to reproduce a longer Broschuere for my Architectural Company , to see how well Publisher fits !

So i tried to organise my images on the page, and i think it s not yet very intuitive..  for example i want to distribute 3 images horizontaly with a specific gap between. i tried for this to use a Table and than to snap my guides to it...   which doesnt work..   I tried for horizontal distribution a Textframe with 3 Colums because here i can decide how big the gap between the colums is, but also here when i create Guides, i cant snap them to my Textcolums.. 

So maybe i miss something.

But the feeling is , we need optical alignmenthelpers that is much easier than the existing Guides..  something like a Grid where i can snap to, but organise it as a moving object, where i can tell..  split this thing to 3 parts and make following gap s..

Do you want to specify the size of the gaps, or do you just need them to be equal?

we need something flexible.. 

I wished it could be something like a "Gridobject" that you can position and ask for   2 to x collums, and define the gaps as wished..  but also maybe more flexible.. so for example , you could neat one of those objects inside the other and also move colums by hand if wanted... hmm...

This feature was added in beta 133,so you should be able to use this method. 

Check that snapping has the correct options turned on.

I think it requires snap to object geometry.

Forcing 500 Architects to work on a beta wouldnt be the best idea....

True I'll wager that that is a firing offence. Also I am sure there must be worse ideas but nothing comes readily to mind. We shouldn't waste time thinking about one either.

I'm thinking about it.

Still thinking about it.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

You are right, there is an issue here…

Text frames, shapes, images etc do snap to column boundaries.

Guides do not snap to column boundaries.

This seems like an oversight. Hopefully it can be easily enabled for the next update? @Dave Harris
