Guides won't "drop"

Dec 5, 2012 12:07 PM

Tags: #guides

Using CS5 and a wacom tablet, when I pull a guide, it won't "drop. I can even switch to other programs, like Firefox, and I can see the dotted guide line following my cursor in the background.

 

Thanks for any help.

    What Wacom driver?

     

    I've had to down-grade Wacom drivers due to click issues with the 6.3.4-3 driver version.

    You might try upgrading your driver then. I wouldn't go all the way to the newest version, but at least to version 6.

    Er... You have got the rulers visible I suppose? :-)

    I don't belive Wacom ever made anything titled "Sapphire". I could be wrong about that though. Graphire 3s are labeled as Graphires.

     

    The problem sounds like some operating system/mouse/input issue and not directly related to Illustrator, especially so if the issue persists when switching applications.

    I don't know how to draw a guide without rulers visible.

    Neither do I. That’s why I asked.

    But you never know with some people :-)

    Is the guide color set to white?

    Huh? Draw any path, then CMD/CTRL-5. In fact, for what it's worth, try that and see if you have the same problem if the guide is generated that way. No idea why that would help, but it can't hurt.

     

    Seems to me I've experienced sticky guides now and then. I believe a re-launch cured it, but it's been a long time.
