If you like to work with lots of page guides, sometimes they can overwhelm the page. Because many guides are only useful when you’re zoomed in, QuarkXPress lets you set individual guides so that they only appear at specific magnifications:
If you hold down the Shift key while pulling a guide from a ruler, the guide will only appear and be functional at a view percentage equal to or greater than the view percentage active when you create the guide.
So, if you want certain guides to only show up in 300% view or higher, then Shift-pull the guides from the ruler when you’re viewing the document at 300%.
