Is it only me? I have the impression, that the View Menu in the Develop Persona is mostly useless / not working?

Example 1: What do "Show Margins" and "Show Pixel Selection" show?

Example 2: Show rulers and try to drag some guide lines onto the image = Not working.

Example 3: Go to Guides Manager and add some guides. The photo gets very dark now, but the guides are visible. With Undo not the Guides Action is undone, but the latest action you made elsewhere (same happens in Grid and Axis Manager).

Example 4: Try to move the guide lines you made with the Guides Manager = Not working as if they were locked, but they are not locked.

Example 5: Why should I use Rotate Left / Rotate Right when I am limited to 15° steps? Much easier with the Crop Tool. Working with the Crop Tool has another bug. You can change the overlay, e.g. to diagonals, but when you are going to rotate the image the overlay turns into squares.

For #5: Note that Rotate on the View menu is merely rotating your view of the canvas. It does not affect the image content. That's very different from what the Crop tool will do :)

For #2: To drag Guides onto the canvas you need to use the Move Tool. As that tool doesn't exist in the Develop Persona, you can only add new guides using the Guides Manager.

For #3: Interesting. If I add  guide using the Guides Manager in the Photo Persona Undo will work. If I add it in the Develop Persona, it's not Undoable. But if I then switch back to the Photo Persona it becomes Undoable.

For #4: I have no trouble using the Guides Manager in the Develop Persona to move Guides.

For #1: They do exactly what they would do in the Photo Persona, and exactly what their name implies. However, if you get into the Develop Persona by opening a RAW image, you will not have any margins or pixel selection to show. They are only meaningful if you enter the Develop Persona manually from one of the other Personas.

Awfully complicated IMO, but accepted. ;)

I did not mean moving inside the Guides Manager but manually, but without a Move tool ...

For you too?
