"Show Column Guides" missing from View Menu


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Following the documentaion there should be a View menu item called "Show Column Guides" that should allow hiding/showing column guides.

I cannot find it (I'm on Photo persona).

I have enabled 3 by 3 column guides but cannot find a way to switch them on/off other than setting the column/row number back and forth between 1 and the number I need.

Quite unconvenient, I'd say.

Affinity Photo 1.8.3 on Windows 10 x64 (Italian).

Thanks,

    Mario

"View>Show Column Guides" is a feature of Affinity Designer, not Photo, which simply has "View>Show guides".

I started to say that, too.

Then I discovered that the Guides Manager (View > Guides Manager) lets you configure column guides in Photo, too. (At least, in the current 1.8.4 beta.)

Hello, have you checked the Affinity PHOTO help?

It both mentions the guides (that are indeed there in the application) and the menu item to show/hide them...

So... missing functionality or error in help ...

EDIT: everything, as mentioned, in 1.8.3 release.

Thanks,

     Mario
