Add Guides to Map Layout
A key aspect to good map design is layout. Guides are used extensively during map layout to keep object and map elements properly aligned.
Guides are placed on a Guide layer. With the Rulers visible (View > Show Rulers from the main menu), drag from a ruler onto the map area. A guide will be placed. Multiple guides can be placed, and the layer can be made visible or hidden from the layers list. Guides are not printed.
Move Guides Around
With the Guide layer active, click onto a guide and drag it into desired position. Constrain guides to the Graph Paper divisions by holding the SHIFT key while moving a guide. To keep objects and text aligned, choose View > Snap To Guides from the main menu.
Drag a guide off the map area onto a ruler to delete it.
