When dragging a guide in from one of the edge rulers in a document, since about 1st August 2022, it somehow is now left selected as the active element of the document.

This means it's broken a considerable amount of workflow.

Example:

Drag a rectanguar marquee.

Drag a guide to snap to the edge of the marquee.

Ctrl-delete to fill the marquee.

 

This used to work. When you do it now, Ctrl-delete deletes the newly-created guide because it has been left as the active element, instead of filling the marquee which is what it should have done.

 

There's no way to de-select the guide without removing the marquee selection first. This is a significant change to the most basic functionality and has removed the ability to have selections in a document if you're trying to use guides.

I'm noticing a change in that when I drag out a new guide line it shows 'blue', and can be deleted by a selection tool. The blue seems to mean that the guide is active (opposed to the cyan guides that are not). The problem is if I use a selection tool and it runs through the active (blue) guide, it will delete just the blue guide. Clicking anywhere on the blank document will deactivate the new guide, turning it to cyan. Anyone else have this problem, or know how to turn it off? Thanks!

As a work-around you could check View > Guides > Lock Guides, you can still drag out guides but you won’t delete them this way.

The change partly makes guides more in line with Illustrator and InDesign — in both applications the selected guide is blue and the most recent guide is selected.

 

Unfortunately, I see the same thing you do in Photoshop. I dragged out three guides, leaving the third selected. Then I drew an elliptical marquee on a new layer and pressed option+delete to fill it. Instead of filling my selection, Photoshop deleted my selected guide — which I wasn't expecting since I didn't have the Move tool.

 

I also tried to multiple select the guides with the Move tool using marquee drag, then shift+click, and neither worked. Only one guide can be selected at a time, so we can't use distribution to space them out.

 

My workaround will be to try very hard to get in the habit of deselecting every time I create a new guide.

I should note this started happening in 23.4.2. Prior to that it worked the way it has always worked for the last decade or more.
