publication column guides

Recommended Posts

Someone said look in Guide Manager, show columns. ~I opened a new A4 document and applied 3 columns. BUT on viewing the page on screen NO COLUMNS showed.

Now what? At least with P Plus you can both show guides and alter them as needed on any page you are working on.

Here's what I've just done:

  1. Created a 4-page document with facing pages.
  2. Double-clicked on the default Master-A master page spread.
  3. Invoked the Guides Manager from the View > Guides Manager ... menu item.
  4. Used the Guides Manager dialog box to set up 1-inch page margins and 4-column column guides (shown in light grey).
  5. Double-clicked on page 1 (which has Master A applied by default) and drew out a text frame, which snapped to the 4-column grid.

Try that out and see if it works.
