I am using the latest Illustrator CC and and found lately when I am moving my guides, they dissapear on screen until I let the mouse go, so when I am lining them up with an object I have to keep letting the mouse go to see where the guide is. Does that make sense?
Also, if I select an object, say a square, and move my guide to line up with the centre mark of the centre, the bounding box of the square deselects, so I cant see where the centre mark is to line it up. This never used to be like this, all things used to remain visible while moving, but now they arent, why change this?? Is it supposed to be an improvement on how it used to be? Or am I missing something that I ahve unchecked or checked to make this happen?
Go to Preferences > Performance and at the bottom deactivate Real-Time Drawing and Editing. I don't know why, but that's the way it works.
thanks for this! Was driving me absolutely nuts trying to just eyeball to align without my guides on selected objects.
Guides have no fill nor stroke. That's what you will see when you move a guide with Real Time Preview enabled; a real time preview of an object without a fill or stroke.
You can also temporarely switch to CPU Preview (Cmd E or Ctrl E).
Or switch to Outline Preview
Or create a separate layer for guides and set the layer to outline mode (Cmd or Ctrl click the layer eye icon).

Well, now that you've said that, I see that it should have been perfectly obvious. Thanks, Ton.
