Designer guide position display, dimensions

Recommended Posts

I am designing an overlay to a blueprint.  What is the best way to show the exact position of a guide?  Right now you have to select the guide, as if you are going to move it, to display the position.  Every time you do this you run the chance of slightly moving it out of position.  Is dimensioning an option?

Hello Bible9230,

In AD: "View", "Guides Manager". You can then see the position of the different guides or change them by double-clicking on the displayed value.
