Diagonal grid in inDesign?

I was setting up a halfcomplex grid in inDesign, and I need the layout to follow some diagonal lines, is this possible to set up in the mastergrid or do I have to put up lines and delete them manually after I put in the content?

Hi electricalyce,

It sounds like your half way there already... I would personally make the diagonal lines/layout up in the A master pages then apply that to the working pages, then as soon as your done you can just right click on the main pages select 'Apply Master' then select 'None' and it will remove them for you.

You could even setup multiple master pages if you have a few varying layouts, then you just switch on and off of the main layout pages as you need them.

No problems :) sometimes just typing it out in a post helps to get your head round it I find!
Sounds like an interesting project with a diagonal grid, good luck with it.
