Smart guides help you to align elements located on the same hierarchical level. They appear if

  • an element is dragged and its outer or center bounds reach another element's outer bounds or center


     
  • an element reaches the outer bounds or center of the parent cell


     
  • the baselines of the texts are at the same position.


     
  • the bounds of a nested element reach the padding

     
  • the bounds of an element reach the margin of another element.

     

Smart guides can be turned on or off by the toolbar button or menu entry View > Smart Guides.
