        I would love to have rulers with or without guides. It would be great to have them for each artboard, but otherwise i'm happy to move the vertices for each board as I move to it. I'd just really like to see some rulers added this excellent product

        By XD, I wonder if you mean the emoticon...

        But anyway... Where are the rulers? How does one make guides?

        Real pity you forgot about rulers.

        How on Earth did even the beta of this ship without rulers? This is Adobe, right? Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign - with simple and effective ruler systems. C'mon guys. This is basic.

        Olga, did you know that you can select an object and press Alt key down to get distances between object and artboard sides? Also, if you move mouse over another object and press Alt key you get the distances between the 2 objects.

        I'd like to be able to measures distances between objects -- I know we can approximate using the grid but being precise would be great.

        Keep everything nice and tidy please Adobe. Rulers automatically should be contained within your artboard, unlike Illustrator (rulers for pasteboard section also). Would be nice if you can only see the rulers within the artboard/pasteboard you currently have selected/are working in. This should be default, if you want rulers to spill over this should be a toggle you can set on/off. Also by default zero the ruler to the artboard you are working on.

        I cannot and will not use XD until it has rulers & guides and snap to grid. at least a settable grid is already there. C'mon Adobe make this happen fast. So many designers in my company have jumped ship to Sketch. Or maybe its already too late. Sigh. In the meantime, I will continue to use Illustrator on my PC.

        Also, the ability to set a 'zero point' for the the rulers, which also sets the zero point of the grid. This is useful in the case where you want an 8pt grid, but the viewport is not divisible by 8 (i.e on the iPhone 7). In this case you may want to offset the grid by 3.

        Feature under Review. Do we have guidelines included and do they go over multiples pages? If not I would open a new feature request for that if not already done. :)
