Can I get rid of all the guides and drag lines and just see a preview of what my final document will look like?

  • To make all of the guides and object boxes disappear you can easily go into preview mode: go to the very bottom of your tools palette (the tall one that has all of the tools such as the line and text creator in it). You’ll see a button that is depressed and looks almost like a power point slide. Click and hold on this button to get the view menu. Normal and Preview are the two you are most likely to use. Slug and Bleed are extended areas around your page that contain printer's marks to help with allignment, and printing instructions. You will probably not be using these.
  • Once you click on Preview mode all the guide lines should disappear and your page will immediately look cleaner and nicer; it’s a What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get view. You can even work in this mode if the clutter of normal mode bothers you, but you’ll need to go back to Normal View Mode to use guides to help line up the objects on your page.
