Iím using Studio Edition and trying to find an easier way to place multiple images for roll paper.

Defining Print Location is simple and precise but if I have do it for over 30 images, it becomes tedious.

I used to love those movable grid guides in Corel Draw.
I know just what you mean.

Just wanted to mention, if it might help, that there is a built in Snap to Grid feature in the Right Mouse menu that kicks the image to a "rounded off" nuber location.

In other words, you want your left hand guide to be lets say, 1.50 inches from the left edge of the paper, the Snap to Grid will lock all the selected to the 1.50 mark as long as you were close enough.

Don't forget there is the CTRL Arrow control for aligning prints to each other in the Full Page Editor.
Position one image in the corner of the page, than use CTRL Arrow to align the images in the columns and rows separately.
That's quite quick & accurate assuming your prints can be aligned in that way.

Terry is right, and I just refreshed my memory.
You don't even have to position the first image to a corner.
You can align subsequent images to the vertical edge (one below the other), or the both planes.
Just align your first image paying attention to the rulers at the top and sides, so you can accurately place it.
Then select the next, and tap CTRL Arrow in the direction you want to go, and it aligns itself to the first image.

Pretty neat trick

Thanks Fred and Terry.
I didnít know such function is there. 

Itís so fun to use CTRL arrow and I played with it for more than ten minutes to get used to it.  Grin
Although, CTRL arrow is not exactly what I was looking for, it will save my time quite a bit.

Thanks again for the great tip.
