Do smart guides work on pasteboard? It is not working on pasteboard for me on InDesign CC 2015.1 Release 22.214.171.124 x64 Build. I did not find any setting for in in Preferences. Can someone please confirm?
Smart Guides apply only to objects that are within the visible area of the page, and are not on the pasteboard.
Thanks Steve :-) Whats opinion about enabling it on pasteboard, thinking about sending feature request for it.
Even, if an object is partly on the page, the smart guides feature will only work partly.
And unfortunately even expanding the slug or the bleed area will not work fully for objects that do not have contact with the visible area of the page:
Edge detection will not work. Center detection will not work. However, indication of width and height will work.
