Creating a Map Layout from Start to Finish - Using Guidelines

Primary tabs

Using Guidelines in Layout View

Layout view allows you to set and use guidelines to which map element can snap to for alignment and spacing purposes. There is no limit to how many guidelines you can place in one layout.

Guide lines are a built-in feature that create a snap line to line up map elements.

    • Click and drag each arrow to move the location of that particular guide
    • Your items will ‘snap’ to these guides as you go along.
    • Right-click on the arrow  to open the ‘layout guide’ menu
