All right. I am excited. I get to show you my favorite power shortcut when working with guides, and that's the ability to create two guides at the same time, specifically a horizontal and vertical ruler guide at the same time. So normally you'll drag a horizontal rule guide, and then you go to your vertical ruler and drag a guide there to create a little crosshair of intersection there. So that's just too much work. I am going go ahead and drag across these guides to select them and then delete them. The trick to drag out two guides at the same time, both a vertical and horizontal guide, is to just hold down the Command key or the Ctrl key on Windows, and drag from the intersection of the rulers.
So I am going to Command+Drag or Ctrl+Drag from that corner. Once I am dragging, I can let go the modifier key. I don't need to have that down anymore. And now you can see I am dragging out an intersection set of guides in one step. I put it wherever I want it. Let go, and boom! There you have it. Sometimes it's just those little things that put a smile on your face, right?
