Unable to Drag Guides Off Artboard (1.8.3)

Recommended Posts

I'm currently running Designer 1.8.3 on Mac OS High Sierra.

Discovered that I cannot delete guides using the drag method (i.e., dragging the guide off the artboard to the rulers). 

Moreover, in resorting to the Guides Manager, I find it difficult to identify which guide, in the long list of guides, is the guide I wish to delete.

Two requests:

  1. Please fix the bug that prevents one from deleting a guide by dragging it to the artboard rulers.
  2. Please add a feature wherein one can select a guide directly, have it highlighted by color, and delete it by striking the Delete key on the keyboard, or right-clicking on the guide and selecting Delete Guide.

That used to be a problem on Windows, too, for a document with any Artboards. It seems to work OK now in the 1.8.4 beta.

UPDATE:

I now see in the online Help files that one removes a ruler guide, not by dragging the guide to the rulers as in other apps from Apple and Adobe, but by dragging the ruler guide beyond the edge of one's artboard or canvass.

Okay. So, first zoom out to see the edges of one's artboard, then drag the guide beyond to the pasteboard.

Still, when one is zoomed in on a document, it would be nice to be able to remove a guide either dragging to the ruler, or by being able to select the guide and hit the delete key, or select a Delete Guide contextual command with a right-click.

Ipad pro 2017 model. guides can be placed but neither moved nor erased - they appear permanently locked. i do not recall this being such a problem in previous versions.

big user, please add me to beta versions as you mention you fixed guide problem in 1.8.4

also, snapping is somewhat chaotic, especially on diagonals 30, 45, 60 degrees snapping ineffectual. hence my need for guides - but they don't work!

regards

Just a comment: This topic is in the desktop area of the forums not the iPad area. You might want to post over there, instead.

(Also, you can download the beta version of 1.8.4 when it's available, yourself. Instructions will be in the appropriate beta forum.)
