    Invisible vertical guides.

    Mitch Redijnsoorts

      I've downloaded and installed Edge Animate on both my laptop and my PC, and on both machines the vertical guides i draw from the rulers are invisible while i can clearly see the horizontal guides. I can drag the vertical guides around and find them with my cursor to reposition them but they remain invisible. Any help would be much apreciated.

          Hi there

           

          Just a stab in the dark here, but when you look at the display properties for your machines, what do you see when you right-click your desktop and choose Personalize, then click the Display link in the lower left corner where it says See Also?

           

          Does the dialog report anything beyond 100%? If so, try setting to 100% and see if that resurrects the visibility of the guide.

           

          Cheers... Rick

            Hello again

             

            One other thing that may help. If you right-click on the guide, the context menu offers an option to change from Pixels to Percentage. And when you do that, the guide changes color. So it's possible that if you have done this, that particular color isn't standing out too much because more contrast is needed.

             

            Cheers... Rick

              Hey there,

               

              Thanks for the swift response, i've checked both your options and those aren't the problem, i found my guides when i zoomed to 300%, so i started playing around and found that the rulers apparently aren't long enough because they stop at about -4000px on the y axis at 100% zoom. No idea how that happened and why it happens on both machines but they can be used even though they're annoying to use right now
