Can I pick up and move rulers?
« on: January 14, 2022, 07:26:16 am »
I find it frustrating that I cannot seem to either grab and position a guideline or move a ruler, from either the too or the side like I could in Publisher or PageMaker. Am I missing something or do those functions not exist?

Make sure the standard cursor is active. Then click and drag from the ruler onto the white area of your page to position a guideline. If you don't drag it onto your actual/current page, the guideline won't appear at all.
