Photoshop won't start a transform with guides visible

As the title says: I tried to transform a layer to straighten an object, so I drew a few guides.

 

Then, when I hit Cmd+T, nothing happens. Edit > transform is grayed out as well.

 

When I hit Cmd+H to hide the guys, Transform works as expected. Once in 'Transform' (handles visible) I can hit Cmd+H again to see the guides and everything works as it should.

 

Edit: Hmm. Cmd+; to toggle visibility of the guides does NOT have the same effect. If I hit Cmd+H (to hide the guides), then Cmd+; to make them visible again, transform DOES work. If I then hit Cmd+H again, nothing seems to happen (the guides shoud toggle off again I'd say, but they don't), but again Transform won't start.

 

Edit2: Seems that the issue was that I also had an (empty) path in the Paths window that was highlighted, so apparently PS thought I was trying to transform that?

Unticking this solved it:

Show > Extra's > Target PathShow > Extra's > Target Path

No idea if this is a new option?

 

Not a big issue, but annoying, and I don't understand what's happening.

Hi there,

So it looks like you solved it, is that correct?
FYI the option to hide guides is the same as show guides, so just command+;  There's no need for a separate shortcut.
