InDesign Guide question

InDesign Guide question

InDesign Guide question

I'm sure there's a simple explanation, but I can't figure it out. I am working on a brochure document. I can see all margin and bleed guides, but the guides I pull from the ruler bars disappear. Can anyone tell me what I'm missing? Thanks for your help!


RE: InDesign Guide question

If it is a problem with all your documents than you do the following without a document open. Otherwise you do it with the problem document open.

Go the "Layout menu" and choose Ruler guides.

Probably the View treshold is way too high. Set it to 5% and you will see your guides again.

The guides you drew out with the higher treshold view will not be visible, but a new one will appear.

Hope it solves your problem

RE: InDesign Guide question

Like I said... easy fix, but I couldn't figure it out. It works great now! Thanks a million Carlow!!
