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.

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.

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