Overlay workpiece size guide in workspace (NOT camera overlay)

Hi everyone!
I hope this question has not been asked before. I was unable to find it with the search function, but I also found it hard to describe what I mean :slight_smile:
When working with plywood, I often have standard sizes of the material (DIN-A4 or DIN-A3 sizes). I would like to have an overlay in my workspace to show the size of such pieces. What I currently do is to draw them in T2 color. This is working fine, but I have to do it every time I start a new design. Is there an option to just overlay such guides in the workspace? Like “turn on guidelines” or similar? I hope you understand what I want to say :slight_smile:

Sounds like you’re looking for a template format.

Don’t think there’s anything like this in LightBurn. Some possible workarounds:

  1. Create a blank file or series of blank files with each standard size included. Then open the file for the size you want and Save As to save as a new file. Or copy the file before opening it.
  2. Add your standard size objects as objects in the Art Library and add at the start of a new project.

Note that you can “lock” objects as to prevent them from being modified or moved if you want this to remain a “background” object.

Thanks for your suggestions! That’s what I also tested, I added them to the art library. And I also locked the frames. It’s working fine, but not perfect :wink: Maybe this finds its way to a new feature someday :slight_smile:
