6.23.  New Guide (by Percent)

The New Guide (by Percent) command adds a guide to the image. The position of the guide is specified as a percentage of the canvas Height and Width.

[Tip] Tip

You can add guides to the image more quickly by simply clicking and dragging guides from the image rulers and positioning them where you would like. Guides you draw with click-and-drag are not as precisely positioned as those you draw with this command, however.

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through ImageGuidesNew Guide (by Percent).
