I was busily importing and editing graphics on page 68 of a large document, when suddenly the pink margin guides around each page suddenly disappeared! I was using some keyboard commands and must have accidentally done something ... I have looked at various sections of the InDesign guidelines and have tried several things. Nothing brought them back (yet) & I've reversed each thing I tried in various dropdown menus. Can anyone help me restore those Margin Guides? I can't work without them. Thanks
That could happen if you switched to Preview mode. Pressing the letter W toggles between Normal and Preview mode.
That didn't do anything in Windows. But you inspired me to check everything in View. I found Normal and Preview under Screen Mode. I have temp. switched to Normal, which covers the entire screen (even the white board) with 1/8" grids/graph paper. 🙂 And that also contains the pink Margin Guides. It's a temp. fix until I find out what I accidentally did. Thanks.
To get rid of the grids: View/Grids & Guides/Hide Document Grid.
Under View > Grids and Guides
you can show and hide the grid and/or the margin and other guides.
Bless you! I've spent hours trying to figure ut what when wrong and nothing I tried worked. Till now!
Thank you @Steve_Werner, pressing W brought them back. I must have pressed it while trying to press SHIFT + W to enter presentation view. Thanks!!
There are two options - one of which has been pointed out already - W toggles the view and cancels the borders in one view.
The other option is CMD ; (colon/semi colon) this too toggles just the pink borders and the verticle/horizintal Guide Lines if you are using these
