[Duplicate] Guidelines not related to ruler zeros

Recommended Posts

Win 7, Publisher 17.0.277

I find placing guides via the guide manager impossible on a double-page spread because the guideline measurements do not relate to the zero marks on the rulers if the zeros have been offset from the top left-hand corner. This really bad when placing vertical guides relative to the vertical centre line in the middle of a two-page spread. A guide supposed to be +5" to the right of the centre line actually ends up 5" from the left-hand side of the left page, even though the x-zero mark on the ruler is in the dead centre of the double-page spread. In other words, it ends up -3.5" (i.e. to the left) from the centre line.

Why not insert a picture directly? Not everyone has Word.

I agree, a simple image is preferable as it will show up directly. But Open- or LibreOffice should handle that file. No Word needed :)

Good point. No problem on Android, either, though. The Docs app opened it just fine :)

Sure, apps for open this documents are a lot, but back to my post - why do things complicated when it's going to do it simply.
