Hi

the marks that appear to show me I have centered text and images has disappeared on my document somehow - I don't know what happened

I did what threads like this said (I think) and turned off snap to document but they're still not showing when I center the elements.

I attach a screenshot of my view>grids & guides box

I can't figure out why it isn't working

UPDATE: I did what everyone had said and it didn't work but what did work was turning off 'lock guides' and then turning on 'smart guides' in the view
