Hey, everyone – I’m Howard Pinsky – Senior XD Evangelist at Adobe. I’ll keep this short. Guides have arrived.
As you’re working on your projects, you may want to lay out guides to better assist you when lining up objects or to make sure elements are spaced properly. An area has been added at the top and left side of your artboards which allows you to drag out your guides, and as you do, contextual information is available to let you know its current location and how far it is from the edges, very similar to what you’d get with rulers. They’ll snap to the horizontal and vertical centers, and if there are objects present on the screen, they’ll nicely snap to those, as well.
Your guides can also move between screens. If you’re working with multiple artboards, you can either duplicate the existing one and the guides will come on over, or if the additional artboards were previously created, select the artboard with the guides, then under the View > Guides menu, copy them. Now select either one or multiple screens, and paste. And just like in Photoshop, Command/CTRL + Semicolon will hide and show them.
And those are guides. Drag them out, line up your objects, copy and paste them to multiple artboards. To continue your XD journey head on over to LetsXD.com and subscribe to the Creative Cloud YouTube channel to catch the latest product updates and live streams. I’ll see you soon.
