id like to know as in ps we can snap our guide lines to the middle of the canvas and they snap making a nice intersection so we know where the middle of the canvas is,so we can place our object,how can it be done in illustrator?the guide lines do not snap,although snap to point is checked.do i have to make the canvas a perfect symmetric and then use the grid in order for the guides to snap?
seems reasonalbe,but im trying to align the guide lines i make 2 of em in the centre of the canvas,then i select them both and in the align pallet i click on horizontal align centre and then vertical align centre,BUT and the guides dont align in the middle of the canvas but outside on the boundareis on the white canvas.
i do have also the aligh to art board checked as well.
whats going wrong?
I am having guides trouble too with CS5.
They will not align to artboard and every time I click align to artboard>center it moves (each click, further to right) completely off the art board.
I have a custom action I created to align/center objects and it used to work with guides. It still works for other objects but the guides won't align anymore… I have to manually enter the coordinates to center them.
Chuck - did you ever find out what was going on? I have the same problem. I have the "Align to artboard" setting switched as above, but when I try and centre guides, it sends them way down on the canvas, off the artboard.
