C The rulers help you lay out your pages. They are shown when ''Show Rulers'' is selected from the ''Layout'' menu.

D The toolbox contains tools to change modes and to draw and manipulate objects. It is shown when ''Show Toolbox'' is selected from the ''Window'' menu.

E The page borders are shown in the window.

F Margin guides on all sides of the page show the area in which you normally place text frames and objects.

G Column guides divide your page into a columnar grid to help you design your page. Margin and column guides are shown when ''Show Guides'' is selected from the ''Layout'' menu.

H These controls set the magnification and change pages.
