Drawing with Drawing Guides

T-SBADV-006-006

Once a guide is active and properly set up, you can use it to assist you in creating a drawing with perspective. The guide will display its axes going through your mouse cursor as you move it inside your drawing space. When you start drawing a stroke, your drawing tool will become locked to the axis that most closely matches the angle of your stroke, forcing you to draw a straight line along that axis, as if you were using a ruler or a set square.

Guides can only be used with the Brush, Pencil or Line tool. The selected guide will only be visible when one of these tools is selected.
