I know how to delete all guides on a spread, but is there a command to delete all guides in a document? I have a 200+ page file, and I hate to have to click through each spread to delete the guides.

 

I can't just hide the guides, because I need the margins and master page guides to show.

 

There has to be an easy way to delete them all at once, right?

This sounds like the most likely solution, but I'm not familiar with scripts...is it easy to run them? Can you explain how I do that, or is it complicated to explain?

Sorry, you are right, it doesn't work on all pages.

Hi @Studioted , the script for removing all document guides is one line:

 

app.activeDocument.guides.everyItem().remove();
