Weird problem moving guides

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Robert Montgomery, Jul 14, 2010.

  1. In CS3, when I try to move a guide, I keep on having this weird problem:
    Instead of the guide moving that the cursor is on top of, a guide
    elsewhere on the page moves instead.

    And often when I try to move a vertical guide with the Move tool, the
    guide move cursor turns into the horizontal guide move cursor, and often
    when I try to move a horizontal guide with the Move tool, the guide move
    cursor turns into the vertical guide move cursor, and again, when I try
    to drag a guide that I think is selected, a guide elsewhere on the page
    ā€“ usually one on a distant part of the page that's not even visible ā€“ is
    moved instead.

    I'm zoomed in much when I try to move a guide, so I only discover that
    the wrong guides have been moved by zooming all the way out to Fit in
    Window view.

    It's usually only after about three or four attempts to move a
    particular guide that I'm successful at moving it, but when I zoom out I
    see that in the process I've accidentally moved or deleted other guides
    that I hadn't intended to move or delete.

    I've been plagued by these problems for a long time.

    I'm using a Mac.
