Different set of guidelines for different pages

Recommended Posts

Dear affinity team.

Recently I tried to set up guidelines for a trifold brochure.

I needed different guideline positions for the front and the back page because the part that folds to the inside needs to be shorter than the other 2 parts.

Obviously Publisher would sync the guidelines over the whole document and it is not possible to have a separate set of guideline for different pages.

Using different master pages was no solution too because guidelines are synced over separate master pages too.

So I think it would be a great idea to setup separate guideline sets for certain pages or at list for different Master pages.

I followed this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HavASPBcZQ and this guy could obviously use separate sets of guidelines for certain pages. Why is this not working anymore in a newer beta of publisher?

Thank you very much for this great new product in the affinity family.

Publisher already allows different Guides on different pages, in my experience on Windows.

Use two (or more) Master Pages for the from and back. Set your guides up there.
