How do I create a (custom) alignment guide in Pixelmator


How do I add a custom/fixed alignment guide in Pixelmator? I know it's possible because I done it before and I'm working with a file that already has three, but I need to add one more. How is that done?

Found it:

This is the procedure:

  1. Select View > Show Rulers.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Click and drag any of the horizontal or vertical ruler bars and drop the guideline anywhere onto your image.
    • Double-click the horizontal or vertical ruler bars and choose New guide from the shortcut menu in order to open a Place a Guide sheet. Select a horizontal or vertical orientation and enter a position at which the guide should be placed. Click OK after you are done.
    • Hold down the Option key as you drag away from the vertical ruler in order to create a horizontal guide and vice versa.

Tip: Hold down the Shift key as you drag a guide to make it snap to the ruler ticks.
