Create guides with other tools then Move/Node-Tool

Recommended Posts


for the sake of usability It should be possible to create a guideline not just by dragging it out of a ruler with the Move/Node-Tool but also with every other tool.

Say, I use the rectangle tool and when the mouse pointer is over a ruler, the pointer should automatically switch to the Move tool (as long as it is over the ruler), then I just can drag out a new guideline.

I often need guides for my work and it would help the work flow a lot. This would be a killer feature!

It's already on the list for future improvements.  Unfortunately, it requires a substation change to our tool framework, so will take some time.
