Changing size/color of ruler lines to increase visibility

Recommended Posts

So when I draw out a ruler line, it is light gray, and being an aging baby boomer I am having a really hard time seeing it.  Is there any way to increase the thickness and/or color of the line so that I can see it better?

Welcome to the forum Christina, 

Which app are you using?

Are you talking about guides? if so there isn't currently a way to change the colour of guide lines but it has been requested quite a lot.

If you are asking about the colour of a curve/path/line drawn using the pen tool this is called the "stroke" of a curve/path/line. With the pen tool selected you should see a context menu above the workspace, it will have a Fill option, a stroke colour option and also a stroke thickness option plus other settings related to the pen tool.

I am talking about Publisher -- and yes guides, where you drag a line from one of the rulers (top or side)  to wherever you want it on the document.  Hopefully they will add that option in one of the future upgrades. Thanks for your quick response!
