- To avoid grabbing the guides instead of other objects on the page go to File > Preferences > General > Guides and check the Guides in Back box. This will put guides at the bottom of the stacking order so they don't interfere with object selection.
- To precisely position objects on the page, choose View > Snap to Guides then drag guides into the desired position. Objects will then snap to the nearest margin, column, and ruler guides. (Snap does not happen if the Guides are Hidden or are on a Hidden Layer.)
- Adjust the Snap to Zone - that area around the edge of the page and guides within which objects are considered aligned - in File > Preferences > General > Guides.
- Normally guides are nonprinting; however, in the General Panel of the Print Dialog Box select "Print Visible Guides and Baseline Grids" to make all visible guides (i.e. not hidden or on hidden layers) print out.
+ means "and" that is, Ctrl+1 means hold down the Control and 1 keys simultaneously. When plus refers to the plus sign, (plus) appears in parentheses as in Command++(plus) means hold down the Command and Plus keys at the same time.
