Guidelines

Description

The two dialog windows: Horizontal Guidelines and Vertical Guidelines are used to set, modify, and delete guidelines. The pages are identical, except for that they apply to two different sets of guidelines: one to the horizontal guidelines and the other to the vertical guidelines. Use of guidelines is described in more detail in tutorial 6.

The settings always correspond to the active page (see tabs on the lower edge of the application window).

A detailed description:

Enter the exact coordinate of the guideline into the text field and then click Add, or adjust the coordinate of an existing guideline by selecting the guideline from the list, entering the new coordinate for the guideline and then clicking on Move. The unit can be chosen from the drop down list. The default unit is set in the Unit Options dialog window.
