Set guide line to specific x/y point

Recommended Posts

Would be great when using guide lines that I can right-mouse click a guide line on the canvas, to then select "Edit guide line position" from context menu for a modal input to set a specific guide line x/y position (option to change axis of guide line could be nice too).

 

Additional feature: hold down option key when clicking point on ruler axis to show "Edit guide line position" modal, to then create a guide line.

 

Additional feature: hold down shift key when dragging guide line to have position snap to 10px increments (or Npx defined in snapping tool)

 

Additional feature (maybe not needed?): hold down option key when dragging guide line to have axis change

 

Cheers!

Hi lvl99,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Thanks for your feedback. Those options are not available as you are describing but the Guides Manager (menu View ▸ Guides Manager...) may help a little in some cases.

It lets you set guides specifying px values (or percentages if you prefer) and also perform math operations in the input fields.
