Delete button at Guide Manager Inactive

Recommended Posts

I opened the Guide Manager at Affinity Designer because dragging it out just move to minus zero instead of deleted it. So, in the Guide Manager the delete button was inactive until a created a new guide.

In essence, dragging the guide back onto the ruler did delete it. That's why you couldn't delete it from the manager.

Deleting a single guide is  a known problem in 1.6, looks to be fixed in the 1.7 beta

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

No, it doesn't work the way you said. That's exactly what I'm reporting. When I drag the guide back to the ruler it just move to a negative number and I realized it because I entered the Guide Manager and the guide was there. And yes, you can delete a guide from the Manager, otherwise why is there a DELETE button?

Hi Ingwe DK,

As Carl123 mentioned there is a known issue deleting guides using the Guide Manager that has been fixed in 1.7. In the mean time as a workaround if you select an existing guide in the Guides Manager and click 'Create New Guide' it will enable the button allowing you to delete the existing one.

However as Walt mentioned I can delete guides by dragging them over the ruler see attached video.
