Join Joseph Labrecque for an in-depth discussion in this video Using guide layers, part of Adobe Animate for UX Design.
- [Instructor] When performing document layout, … it's important to be able to set up guides … that go beyond what's available in your document settings. … This could take the form of something like a 12-column grid … or marginal layout structure. … And to achieve this, … we need to look to a special kind of layer, … called a guide layer. … The first thing we're going to do, … is to draw out … our actual guide content. … So we only have a single layer right now, Layer_1, … and that's absolutely fine. … Inside of the Tools panel, … locate the Rectangle tool. … And then in the Tool Properties, … I'm going to do a couple things. … The first is to change my fill color … to this sort of green color here … and maybe pull down the opacity to something about 20%. … I'm also going to disable my stroke … by choosing stroke color and this option here … that looks like a white box with a red slash through it. … That will disable my stroke. … Now all I need to do is actually draw out my guide content. …
