I'm a huge fan of the cyan guidelines in Adobe programs (the ones you get by clicking and dragging from the ruler). I also love being able to move/nudge them with my arrow keys on my keyboard in Illustrator and InDesign. This feature should be included with Photoshop as well. Since these programs are all designed to work together, it seems silly that such a simple yet helpful feature isn't included in all Adobe programs. Please give us this option!

That's a very good idea!
(in fact in Photoshop, as opposite to ID and Illustrator, guides aren't "real" objects (that's why you don't see them in the layers)

However, there may be an option to move them more precisely using the "edit selected guides" option.

you have access to an input box where you can either type in your number, or even use the keyboard arrows to move up or down in number... You can also change your colour from there - it doesn't have to be cyan.

The input box can be filled with the ususal suspects (px, cm, in, points etc) and accept direct addition, substration directly in the box...

Of course it would be even better with a direct positioning!

It is a shame that this new 2023 feature isn't recordable in an action and that although some script code is recorded, it can't be used.
