TIP
How are Smart Guides different from gridlines and guidelines?
Smart Guides change as you move and resize objects. They are particularly helpful in making objects
equidistant from each other. Smart Guides appear and disappear as you move objects around. You need to
be very close to an aligned position for them to appear, and so they can be challenging to use. Gridlines
and guidelines are continuously visible while they are enabled. Gridlines can help you plot objects on a
slide, while guidelines are movable and are particularly useful for lining up objects with background
features. All of these tools have similar uses, but some are more helpful than others with certain tasks.
