It would be extremely helpful to be able to place guidelines while editing text, Bible and lyric cues that persisted across all pages, similar to the ruler guides in PowerPoint, Photoshop and Illustrator. Right now there are "smart guides" that allow you to (sort of) align objects to other objects or to the center of the page, but these seem to have a little play in them (i.e. an object will snap to a smart guide but you can still move it a few pixels before it will stop you from moving it completely). They also don't work when resizing objects. Having the ability to set horizontal and vertical guidelines in the cue editor -- perhaps even including rulers across the top and side -- would make it easier to line up objects perfectly or setting up margins when creating text-based cues and cue templates.

Thanks for your request! I really like that idea. I'll go ahead and pass this along over to the Team to see if this is something that can get added to a future build of MediaShout.
