So one little hidden behavior here, if I turn on my Rulers, Command+R or Ctrl+R, and I started dragging out a ruler guide. So let's go ahead and drag out this guide here. And I want this to be a vertical guide. So I'm going to hold down my Option key or Alt key. You will notice that as you drag in the Ruler Bar, it's going to be hard to see here but take a look at the top. If you follow my cursor here, I'm able to move this ruler guide pretty much anywhere in the document. It's not necessarily aligning to an actual ruler tick mark. So if you want your guide to be on a whole ruler tick mark, hold down the Shift key and you will land exactly on a ruler tick mark.
