In the past days I encountered an error that I had never noticed before: After working for hours with several documents consisting of about 10-15 artboards with individual column guides, the option to show/hide the column guides from the view menu disappeared several times. I had to restart Affinity Designer in order to get them back working.

I have no precise recipe to reproduce this error. But perhaps somebody else has encountered it, too. One thing I do remember is, that I dragged an element on the canavas (outside an artboard), saw the colomn guides populating the whole canvas for a brief moment before they disappeared again. Afterwords I wasn't able to switch them on and off anymore.

Hi Volker,

Do you mean the entire menu option disappeared, or simply that it was still there but no longer functioned? It might be worth grabbing a screenshot and attaching a document with history saved it if happens again!

Hi Sean!

Yes, the entire menu option disappeared (and the customized shortcut didn't work as well). Next time it happens I will get you a screenshot.
