Page Crop Marks

July 28th, 2009

Here is a quick way of setting page boundaries on long scrolling pages. Aluísio has applied and made visible some sort of page crop marks on his wireframe. This approach could be used to give a stronger sense of the relationship between the wireframe and the page screen to show what is visible and what is beyond the fold.

    See for example:

    Yeah, it has been around a long time. I like the use here though — I would never have thought to use crop marks to indicate boundaries on a wireframe. Bravo!

    Agreed. I must of been writing this late at night. :) Thanks for the tip.
