The commands in the Guides menu are used to create guidelines that perfectly match of the boundaries of an object. Instead of creating a guideline by dragging it from the Ruler and matching it to an object, use one the options below for speed and precision.
The six commands in the Guides submenu are as follows:
Add Guide at Text Cap HeightAdds a guide at the text object's cap height position
Add Guide at Text BaselineAdds a guide at the text object's baseline position
Add Guideline at Text Vertical CenterAdds a guideline at the vertical midpoint between the text cap height and baseline
Add Guide at Horizontal CenterAdds a vertical guideline at the horizontal center
Add Guide at Vertical CenterAdds a horizontal guideline at the vertical center
Add Guide Along Top EdgeAdds a guide at the upper of boundary of the object
Add Guide Along Bottom EdgeAdds a guide at the lower boundary of the object
Add Guide Along Left EdgeAdds a guide at the left boundary of the object
Add Guide Along Right EdgeAdds a guide at the right boundary of the object
This example has guidelines on all sides.
