Measuring Guides stopped working. It used to work fine. 

I have tried holding the command key however it is still not working. I'm using Affinity designer version 1.6.1 on my mac. I'm facing the same issue with Affinity Photo. Any advise?

Hi MEB, 


Thanks for your reply. I am selecting and object while pressing the command key and pointing to the other object; however, the measuring guides are not appearing. Again it used to work in the past.


You can check the screen shot.

I'm trying to use the measuring guides (as per https://affinity.help/designer/en-US.lproj/index.html?page=pages/DesignAids/measuring.html?title=Measuring guides), but when I have an object selected and press ⌘, it just copies the object, so instead of seeing the measuring guide I just get duplicate copies (see video).

I have tried all sorts of combinations of other modifier keys, and nothing seems to help.

And despite looking through pretty much all of the keybindings, I can't find anywhere to change this behaviour in the settings or anything like that — can you help?
