I am not able to see guides as i drag them across on my canvas. The snap suggestions are visible only from my cursor tip. this is really frustrating as i can't move a group of guides to a desired detail without having a trial an error even from up close.

That is because you will see a real time preview of the guides when Real Time Drawing & Editing is checked in the Preferences, because they have no stroke, you will see nothing.
To work around it, you can temporarily switch to CPU Preview or Outline Preview.
