Guide Lines, Drag values from point zero

Recommended Posts

Hello. I have changed point zero of the ruler. Now zero is somewhere in the middle of the page.

When adding vertical or horizontal guide lines by dragging, the value is not counting from the new point zero.

Same in the guides manager, it's not counting from individual point zero

Is there a preference where I can define the starting point for guide lines?

Please see attachment.

Thank you in advance, HGF

For some reason the new location for the zero is ignored by the Guides Manager, it is very frustrating and I can only hope that the developers will correct this soon.

I believe that has been reported as a bug.

This may have been a design choice rather than a bug?

:35_thinking:

 

If this does change, then when you place the guides then move the origin, should the guides move or should the numbers be re-interpreted based on the new origin point?

Just curious as to what the thinking is here.

I would expect and prefer the latter.

I agree here with @Old Bruce that everything should be relative to the Origin Point. If you move it, it should be reflected in the Guides Manager and everywhere else.

Basically, the Zero Point should be the only source of truth for where things are in the Publisher universe. I have reported this to be a bug, but there may be others who've done that too.
