Apps: AllPlatforms: Windows, macOS and iPad A number of suggestions have been taken on with guides... 1. When you move a guide by dragging it on a document you will now see both the position of the guide relative to the ruler origin (as before) as well as the distance from the guide's previous position. So this means if, for example, you just want to move a guide 10mm you can achieve that easily without having to change the ruler origin. 2.When dragging a guide, holding Shift will now snap the guide to ruler marks. As this is based on ruler marks this also means the further you are zoomed the granularity of the Shift-constrained snap increases. Shift will snap based on the distance from origin, Shift-Alt will snap to the delta distance. 3. If you hold Alt or Command (Ctrl on windows) before dragging a guide that will now create a copy of the guide. 4. If you drag a new guide from rulers then guide visibility will automatically be toggled on (if it was set to off). 5. Alt-clicking on any guide will delete the guide. 6. Double clicking on an existing guide will now open the guide manager dialog (with the guide you had double clicked having focus in that dialog. Please note: on iPad you will need to use an attached keyboard or use the command controller (if not visible you can toggle it on from the document menu) to access the modifiers. Also worth bearing in mind that Alt is the global modifier for ignore snapping, so if you create a copy of a guide using Alt while you still hold Alt snapping will be disabled. Please let us know what you think or if you spot any problems with this new functionality.
Hi there, I'm sure this has already been suggested, but it’s one of those little annoyances that create friction in the daily workflow. When you drag a guideline from the document ruler, View > Show Guides should be automatically enabled. For when I drag out a guide, it is easy to imagine that I would like to see it afterwards, isn’t it? — I really shouldn’t have to enable Show Guides manually. Guides.mov Please fix this example of needless bad UX. Thank you. 🙂
Hi everyone, excuse me if this has already come up. I'd like to make some features requests on this topic: When drawing guides, I'd like to snap in rounded numbers (5, 10,...) by using a key modifier like Shift, or snapping by default and then use Alt key to override this behaviour. They could snap to grid divisions as well. Guides and grid management could be grouped in one window, and this could be open by doble cliking the ruler I think these exist in PS long ago, if any of them are already present in Affinity please let me know. Thanks.
While the Guides Manager is great, it would be really good and save a lot of time to be able to select guides with the selection tool, duplicate them by "option dragging" and delete them with the "delete" key. Maybe next update? Thank you
