Hi,

I have PDF with Page numbers and Running Head text with different alignment. Now i am checking those Position using Guides by maually page by page. Each page i am settting the guide manually drag from Horizonal/Verticle ruler.

Now i want to set the Guide for whole document, Top & Bottom =10mm, Left & Bottom =15mm. So that i canable to check each page using this guide fastly.

Please advise how to do this. I have Acrobat Xi Pro.

I think that in this context you're referring to printer marks and hairlines, not guides.

 

In Adobe Acrobat, the term guides is used to describe the use of gridlines, rulers and marks but to align PDF objects in a page, not for cropping nor defining document  pages boundaries.

 

See if this Adobe Helpx guidance provides the correct answer to your inquiry:

This can be done using a script. Although it can't add actual guides it can create line comments at these exact coordinates on all pages and then lock them. However, you won't be able to snap objects to them, just use them as, well, guides...
