Hello, I'd like to report a potential bug that may be in Photoshop. I've provided some step-by-step procedures that explains what's happening. I'm currently using a M1 MacBook Air where the issue is occuring:
Create a canvas that's 2000px x 2000px
Create a circle and place it in the center with the Smart Guides (lines are pink by default)
Go to View > Show > click off Smart Guides
Go back to the circle and move it around; the Smart Guides aren’t there
Go back to View > Show > click back on Smart Guides
Go back to the circle and move it around, the Smart Guide is still not there
To bring back the Smart Guides, I had to go to Photoshop > Preferences > General > ResetPreferences on Quit
Hmm. Seems to work here. I can turn of smart guides by toggling View > Show > Smart Guides on and off. After you restored your prefs in the last step, were you able to toggle the Smart Guide off and on OK? or were they still invisible?

Hello, after resetting, the Smart Guides do come back. But if I follow the same process again, the Smart Guides don't show up after turning (View > Show > Smart Guides) back on. I did notice if I click and drag the circle very fast on the canvas, I can see the missing Smart Guides for a split second, then they're gone. Like, it's less than a split second the missing guides will show again.
