Artboard Guides bug


Recommended Posts

The Guides are specific to the Artboard that you have selected on the workspace or in the Layers panel.

When you click on your object that is in the pasteboard, you deselect the Artboard, and so the Guides disappear as you're no longer working with that Artboard. They will reappear once you select the Artboard again by clicking on its name in the workspace, or clicking on it in the Layers panel.

Thanks Walt. I understand how they work. After playing a bit more I now have to click the artboard name for the guides to show again. Clicking in or on an element on the artboard doesn't seem to make the artboard active anymore. Pretty sure thats not how it used to be?

Clicking on a different element that's in the Artboard still works for me. Clicking on the Artboard itself doesn't, but I'm not sure it ever did.

As Walt has said this is behaving for me as well. Could you attach a screen recording (showing the entire screen) of what actions you're taking, along with a demonstration file you've used please?

Occasionally I will have an element 'over' the artboard but that element is not actually in/on the artboard.

Affinity Designer 2.0.0 | Affinity Photo 2.0.0 | Affinity Publisher 2.0.0 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.
