Locking Guides discussion (split)

Thanks to the devs for providing a Lock Guides toggle in the View menu of AD beta 1.7.0.6.

I must be going blind or something because I don't see "Lock Guides" or anything like that in the View menu or its sub-menus in the 1.7.0.6 beta:

Where should it appear?

You argued against it being provided, so be happy that it's not cluttering up your menus :D

Yes, I would have preferred a different approach but as it is, I just want to know if my copy of the latest beta is somehow defective & needs to be reset or what.

It looks like it is missing from the US locale View Menu (and probably other languages). I'll get this passed on to development, thanks for letting us know.

FWIW, I temporarily changed the app Language localization from "English (United States)" to "English" & sure enough, the "Lock Guides" item appeared on the View menu.

Thank you, lock guides much appreciated, but wouldn't the lock/unlock be better in Guides Manager?

It could be in the Guides Manager, too, but we need it in a menu so that a keyboard shortcut can be assigned.

Technically there is no reason that a shortcut could not be assigned to something that is not in a menu, but I do agree that a simple checkbox in the guides manager could be nice in addition to the menu option.
