Is it going to be possible anytime soon to change the appearance of the guidelines? They can be very difficult to see at times and I can see no way to make them a little thicker or change their colour.

There are no entries in the current Beta's for Mac or windows to give any of the Affinity products the ability to change the colour of guides yet, and I doubt you will ever get the ability to make guides thicker. 

You can follow the Beta releases in the Beta forums: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/32-beta-software-forums/

Thanks for your reply. I had a feeling that was the case. I'm working on illustrations that have blue backgrounds at the moment and the guides are almost impossible to see. Hopefully Affinity will take notice of this post.

I had the same problem, and needed to use a Recolour filter layer that I switched on and off to complete the design to distinguish Guides.

Personally it's a given that guides have the ability to be colour changed. The only other option for you at the moment would be to make a layer and draw thin 0.1pt - 0.2pt curves and lock it, the advantage for this is angled pseudo guides.

That's what I have to do. Silly to have to do so though :)

I think it's a pretty basic requirement from a design program.

Alternatively, a suitable blend mode, such as Difference, can be used so that the guide is visible over each color. Just have to always be in the top layer.
