Design Aids



Rulers are small bars on the top and left the side of the viewport showing document coordinates. They are useful when you need to accurately place objects or guidelines on the canvas. Rulers are lined in chosen document units.

By default rulers are not visible. To toggle Ruler’s visibility go to View > Canvas > Show Rulers or use / CTRL + / ALT +R shortcut.

The point at the top-left corner of the canvas/page where 0 appears is called the ruler origin point.
