How to move columns’ guidelines in Indesign

The layout’s guidelines are an essential tool in maintaining alignment in magazines and newspapers. It is therefore one of the steps that need to be more careful when creating a layout base document.

Normally the columns and the margin between them are values that are defined in the New Document options’ window. In this way, the layout will be created having the columns defined in the Margins and column’s window, regularly distributed across the width of the page. If you need to define a page layout, ie a base layout from which then you would create different layouts for each section of the project, it is best to define in the New Document options’ window only the parameters regarding margins of the magazine. Subsequently assigning columns in the window Margins and columns.

Again the page will have the number of columns determined vertically distributed regularly.

But this provision is not mandatory, in cases where it is necessary to alter the arrangement of the columns these guides can be moved manually. To do so the first thing to do is unlock their position using the context menu that appears when you press the right button, or CTRL + click.

Once unlocked, you can move and drag the mouse to the desired position.
