There are no positioning guides when I am placing a label or button in the container. How do I use this function?

The blue guides are not appearing on Xcode when positioning objects (buttons & labels). I want to activate it so I can complete this tutorial correctly.

Try zooming in further in main.storyboard's viewController scene before dragging and dropping UI elements.

I have tried that Kyle. Unfortunately it did not work. I am sure it has something to do with aligning and autopositioning.

What version of xCode are you using?

6.3 I know it must be simple. I must have it switched off somewhere but can't find the location. I am new to this so pardon the question.
