Alignment Tools: Rulers, Grid, Guidelines

Alignment Tools

Use the alignment tools to move and precisely position objects (layers). Rulers are shown along the edges of the Image Window. Guidelines (as well as the Grid) are nonprinting supporting horizontal and vertical lines which are displayed over the image (they will not appear on the final result).

To create a horizontal/vertical guideline, place a cursor over a corresponding ruler, and holding the left mouse button, drag a blue line which appears under the cursor. You can move the guidelines with the Move tool (the cursor will turn into ).


To remove the guideline, drag it outside of the Image Window.

Click on the button in the top panel to open the alignment tools menu:
