Designer - Locking guides does not apply when resizing an artboard

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I may resize an artboard at some point in the design process. When an artboard contains guides, resizing it changes the guides' location even when they are locked. So they seem to be linked to the board. Now that I know this I will work differently but would it be possible to imagine a type of guides that when they are locked would not change their position even when changing the dimensions of the board?

If I drag a guide onto an artboard, and resize the artboard, the guide maintains its position.

Are you, perhaps, using the Guides Manager, and specifying the Guide locations using percentages?

Thanks Walt,

No... well it isn't ticked, and they move with the artboard ? I certainly do something wrong but I don't see what ??

In your latest screenshots you have column guides, too.

Are your regular guides changing position when you resize the artboard, or are they just changing their position relative to the column guides?

I did try different features including column guides.

Regular guides change position when I resize the artboard. I use the release version.
