    Yes to all three! As has been mentioned earlier in this thread, we're working on both supporting plug-ins and layout grids, and we're approaching it with the same ethos as we have the rest of the product: thoughtfully crafting clean experiences for a user base that cares about such things. As you probably know, we currently support square grids, which can double up as baseline grids. (As a side note, we'd need baseline snapping to make baseline grids useful.)

    I'm curious about your use of guides; do you normally create columns with them, or are you using them arbitrarily to help you align things?

      In terms of how I use guides, it's typically closer to the need that a column grid provides... to ensure vertical or horizontal rhythm throughout a page. Sometimes these guide layouts are not perfectly spaced in what a traditional column grid provides, but it's further from the world of arbitrary guides. I usually start by creating my margin lines and other major snap points on a column grid and go from there. In terms of other Adobe products, I've always personally liked how Photoshop's guides are created compared to Illustrator, since they are easier for me to create pixel perfect guides.
