Now if we double-click pages 1 and 2 here in the Pages Palette and go back to that first spread, you can see the way it's laid down three columns on each side. This will be pretty continuous on most pages and maybe somewhere we decide to change that layout, but what we want to do is set up some guides on this document, so they appear on every single page for us to align elements to. So we are going to keep a very consistent theme throughout these four pages.
Now if we wanted guides on every page, we could go ahead and create them on every page, but the best and easiest way to do it is to use the master page. Now if you come back up here to the Pages Palette and double-click the A-Master name here, that will take us into the A-Master spread. You can check it in two ways. The first way is that this icon is now highlighted in the Pages Palette and not the original pages, but also down here in the lower-left it does say, A-Master. That always tells you what page you are currently on.
So when you are going in and editing the master page, just feel free to perform either one of these safety checks to make sure the elements you drop down on this particular page are indeed on the master and not on one that you may still have selected.
Now we want to drag some guides down onto the page and have them in very specific positions according to the layout design that I am going to work towards. So if you come up to the rulers, either on the top or the side, we will actually go for the top because we are only going to drag horizontal guides at this point in time. Simply click and drag down and you will notice a blue guide will appear. Now as we drag it up and down, you may notice in the very upper-left hand side of the Control Palette, there is a grayed out number that's showing us how far down the page we are actually dragging this. Well, it's a little bit hard to actually see that but also to edit it when you are dragging.
What I normally suggest when people are generating guides on a page is simply just drag it down and drop it anywhere, because once you have let go of it, it's still selected but you will notice that the Y axis value here in the Control Palette has now become available and this allows us to position things accurately.
Now before we do that, I want to point out something specific. We dragged down a guide from this top ruler on to this spread, yet the guide has only appeared on the left hand side. You will notice it finishes here, does not go all the way across. There is a couple of things you can do. You can either start dragging down and then hold down Ctrl or Command on the Mac and you will notice that the guide that you now create goes all the way across the entire spread. Just hit Ctrl+Z or Command+Z for a second to undo that.
If you have a guide already on the page, if you move that up and again hold down the Ctrl or Command, you will see that one gets converted into a spread guide. So it doesn't really matter which way you do it, it's just that one keyboard shortcut that takes care of it for you.
So once you have got that specified as a spread guide, come up here to the Y axis value and let's change this one to 20 millimeters. Now remember, if you are using inches, you will need to type in 20 mm and then simply hit Return or Enter and you will see that guide beautifully snaps out to exactly 20 millimeters down the page.
Now we are going to need another one at 30 millimeters down. So again, hold down your Ctrl or Command keys, drag another guide from the top to make sure it becomes a spread guide and let's highlight the value there and let's change that to just 30 millimeters. Now we have two, we only need one more. So I perform the same function. Drag another spread guide down, drop it somewhere down towards the lower part of the page and we will settle that at about a 170 millimeters which is actually going to be 20 millimeters up from the bottom. So we have a 20 millimeter gap here at the top, then also one down here 20 millimeters up from the bottom.
