Now we are just going to make a couple of final changes to this because we do want a couple of guides here that are going to show up on every single page we do in this layout. So we are just going to make a few tidy up changes here.
First thing is let us turn off the Lock icon here for the guides. Let us select all of those three guides we see inside the document just by dragging across them and hit the lead to remove them. Let us get rid of the shape that we created over here on layer one by clicking on this outside edge. Again, hit the lead to remove it. Let us go back to the guides layout for a second, come up to the pages palette and double click either the A Master left or right hand icon to take you straight to that spread and then what we will do is we will hold down the control key or the command key on the MAC and drag a guide from the top ruler here, with holding them that shortcut to make sure the guide goes across the entire spread. Just drop it somewhere in the upper part of the page here and then come up to the control palette and let us change its exact value to 20 mm and hit enter to say, “Okay”, that will position it exactly 20 mm down the page.
What we will do now is again, control click and drag another guide down, just drop it anywhere on the page. Once again, come back up to the control palette, select the value and let us put that down at 170 mm. Hit Return and we will see that guide, it drops down towards the bottom.
Now if we look at the entire spread here, we can see this is not actually correct. This is not 20 down from the top of the page and this is certainly not a 170 mm down. This guide should be somewhere around here and this one should be somewhere around here. The reason for this is we have keyed in these values based on the zero lock. Now, remember a second ago, we moved the zero lock so it is in this point right here. So everything is actually now being shifted down a further 10 mm from where it should be. So I wanted to do that because this is a sort of a mistake that you will run into. Even I run into it after six years of using this program.
So what we will do is very quickly make a change to this right now, keeping the bottom guide selected. Let us come up here to the zero lock and double click to reset it to the upper left hand side. The bottom guide is still selected and you can see its value is actually now 180 mm. Let us change that back to 170, hit Enter to say, “Okay”. Let us come and select this guide on the page, the one that is supposed to be at 20. You can see it is at 30. Change that value to 20 and hit Enter again. That has now set them in the final position.
