Guides Manager in Designer (1.7.0) unable to change margins

Recommended Posts

I noticed that in Designer we cannot change the Margins from the Guides Manager but we can do that with Photo.

On Windows, I can see and edit the value of Margins in the Guides Manager in both Designer and Photo.

Hopefully fixed the screenshot - though it doesn't add much to what I said - I see working margins!

This is in Designer. Doesn't matter if Metal is on or off, doesn't matter if I have margins assigned with a new document or not and the arrow keys work to increase all the other values as well as using the number keys. As I said in Photo it works.

There is a known issue that these do not work if your document contains an Artboard.”
