Problem using Guides efficiently

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have issues with Guides. 

Dragging a out a guideline from the Ruler doesn't allow me to modify it, like delete or rotate. How do I delete a single guidelines without having to open Guides Manager and trying to guess it placement en procent. And how do I rotate a guide?

You can delete a Guide by dragging it back to the ruler you dragged it out from.

You can't rotate a Guide. They are either Vertical or Horizontal depending on the ruler you dragged them from.

Haha! I tried dragging it back numerous time... Apparently I did it wrong.

 

Which application and OS are you using?

What happens when you try to drag it back to the ruler?

CSJ, yes if you are zoomed in dragging the guide to the ruler doesn't work it just scrolls and moves the guide. 

If you have the entire image on the screen then it works.  And of course you have to be in the move tool.  FYI if you drag a guide from the vertical ruler while holding down the opt key you will get a horizontal guide.  And from the horizontal ruler with opt key pressed gives a vertical guide.  That's as close to rotating you can do for a guide.
