Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with rulers and guides, part of Learning InDesign (2011).
In this exercise, I am going to show you how to work with rulers and…guides inside of InDesign.…I still have opened that Photoshop 3D notes.indd file.…I am backed up too far away, so I'll show you yet another way to zoom in.…Go up to the View menu and choose Actual Size, which represents ostensibly the…100% view of your document, or you can press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+1 or…Command+1 on the Mac.…Now, I'm going to go ahead and scroll over a little bit, so that we can see these…rulers along the top and left sides of the document window.…
Now if you don't see the rulers, go up to the View menu and choose the Show…Rulers command, is what you would see here, or press the keyboard shortcut, Ctrl+R,…or Command+R on the Mac.…Now, I have currently got my rulers, as I was telling you a couple of exercises ago,…set to the unit of measure picas, as they are by default here in the States.…Let's say you want to override that.…Just go ahead and right-click on a ruler and choose a different unit of measure.…
