Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting ruler and column guides, part of Introducing InDesign.
- In this movie, I'll show you how to set custom…ruler guides as well as column guides inside InDesign.…Now, the thing to bear in mind when you're working…with InDesign is that everything is a selectable object.…So in that regard, it's very…different than a word processor.…So, for example, if my black selection tool…is active at the top of the toolbox, then I can…click on an object in order to select it.…In my case, I've gone and selected…this text object right here.…
Now, I can drag that object to a different location.…So it's just like dragging some text…across a real-world piece of paper.…The advantage, however, of working inside of InDesign…as opposed to engaging in traditional paste up…as in the old days, is that you have these colorful…guidelines that give your document structure.…For example, notice if I drag this object back over…to the left-hand side, at a point it's going to snap…into alignment with that vertical guide.…
So once again, I'll go ahead and…move this guy over a little bit.…Notice this vertical guideline right there.…
