A Guide to Guides

Guides are dotted straight lines, both horizontal and vertical, used to visually align objects. In case you don't see them on your slide select the View Menu and click on Guides. When an object is close to a guide, its corner or center, whichever is closer, snaps to the guide. Guides are visible in the Slide view only. You can add, move, and delete guides.

To move a guide: Click on the dotted line and drag it to the desired location. 

To create multiple guides: While holding Ctrl down, click & drag an existing guide. 

To delete a guide: Simply click and drag the guide off the slide to delete it.
