I'm not sure what you mean about seeing the position of the guides while you move them. Doesn't the ruler show you that.

Also, though there's no option to put them on all pages, you can put them on a Master page, and they'll show up on any page that uses that Master.

You can also use the guides manager to put them precisely where you want them.  Having said that @walt.farrell, it would really be helpful if you could see the the Guide in the ruler as you are moving it.  I think this might be an enhancement, or really a bug, but when you are moving the cursor around on the document, you get a line in the rulers showing where the cursor is, but once you click on the guide, the line goes away.  I'm running version .283 on Mac 10.13.6.  Looks like the problem only occurs for the vertical guides.

@Ernesto José  Here's a screen capture of the guides manager showing how you can set the precise spot where you want the guide.

On Windows there's a visible line on the ruler as I drag guides, for both horizontal and vertical guides. The guide is invisible between the page boundary and the ruler, but the line on the ruler is visible.

On Windows the horizontal guides are only visible on the ruler for page 1 - not for pages 2 etc. Maybe this is connected to the problems in the transform panel vertical readings. It would be nice if guides could be snapped to units by moving them on the rulers.

I can confirm what MickRose said about the guide 'stubs' only being shown in the vertical ruler on the first page in Windows 10 too.
I've also noticed that, when I drag a guide from the top ruler onto a page with a number greater than 1, the Y value of that guide in the Guides manager shows the correct value but the Y value tip shown when the guide is dragged shows a very different and negative value. The same thing happens when I add a guide via the Guides manager.

On the Mac, the guides on page 2 don't have the ruler indicators for either vertical or horizontal guides.  I also saw that the first time I pulled the vertical guide out of the rule, the entire guide was not visible, even though I could see the numbers in the Guide Manager window changing.  When I released the mouse button, the guide appeared.  I couldn't get it to repeat that behavior when pulling a new guide out.  But it does repeat if you remove all guides, put a guide on Page 1, then put a new guide on page 2

I think that's normal and expected behaviour.
The first time you drag the guide out you're in Preview Mode where guides are not shown.
Once you drop the guide, Preview Mode automatically comes off so you can see the new guide (along with whatever else was hidden).

Oh, hang on, I've just tried this with another document and Preview Mode comes off as soon as I start dragging a guide from a ruler. This is different from both what I remember seeing earlier and what's on your video. It seems like this behaviour isn't entirely consistent. This may need a bit more experimentation. (Note: I think Preview Mode should come off as soon as you start dragging the guide.)
