If you're reading this and know a thing about InDesign guides, I can really appreciate your help. I have an AM deadline for a project. 😞

 

I'm running Indesign 2021 (latest version) on Windows.

My issue: I can create guides on some pages, but not others. When I drag the guide, it doesn't stay/stick and isn't visible. The problem is only in my current document, everything else I open works normally. This was never an issue until today and I don't know what changed. I've (seemingly) tried everything like making sure guides are set to visible, setting guides to show at 5% or greater, playing with masters, etc..

 

Example:

-Page 1, I can drag and place guides normally.

-Page 2 I can drag the guide but it will disappear when I try to place it.

-If I duplicate page 2, somehow the guides work again on the duplicate.

 

I have no idea what setting or issue is causing the guides to work on some pages and not others.

Please help me.

 

Thanks!

Save the document as an IDML document and rename. Hopefully, when you reopen it the corruption would have cleared.

Remember, never say you can't do something in InDesign, it's always just a question of finding the right workaround to get the job done. © David Blatner
