When working in Photoshop, I regularly use the smart guides when working on spacing by selecting the object and pressing Command (or control) and moving my cursor over other objects or the background and it displays the spacing in px or whatever the measurements are set at.
I am looking to do the same thing in InDesign, how can I do this? I have Smart Guides on, and following out the same steps as in Photoshop, and I didn't have any success :/
Anyone know how to do this? Or if it's even a thing?
Thank you so much!!
InDesign had Smart Guides before Photoshop. It shows you Smart Object Alignment; Smart Dimensions when resizing, rotating, etc.; Smart Spacing (but without showing the distance between like Photoshop does); Smart Cursors when resizing or rotating.
It doesn't work exactly as Photoshop's Smart Guides do. Here's the relevant Help file to explain it:
