I'm baffled by a recent change in the color of a new guide as it is being dragged from a ruler. It's a dotted white line which is invisible against a white background in product shots, for example.
I thought the Guides, Grid & Slices preferences would let me change this to the actual Guide color (a light blue, as always) but nothing I do there affects the color of the guide being dragged.
I would prefer the dragged guide was not white, obviously, but the same color as the fixed guide. As it used to be, in short. How can I get there from here? TIA
Your guides should be this blue-green colour as they have always been. I just tried it on mine (also running 21.2.4) and it works fine.
Have you tried resetting your preferences? It looks like a bug.
I did try resetting the preferences but it had no effect on the guide color as it is being dragged. Thanks for the thought.
I encountered the same problem on my MacPro [Mid 2010; High Sierra10.13.6] with Photoshop 21.2.5. A white dotted line when dragging. It can be seen clearly against a black background.
On my MacBook Pro however the guides are a black line and not dotted while dragging on a white background.
When I change the background to black the guides are white while dragging
[Photoshop 22.1.1, Macbook mid 2015; Mojave 10.14.6]
I think Photoshop should change the colour of guides beiing dragged in the most contrasting colour - black or white - automaticaly [and not dotted]. On my MacPro it doesn't work properly.
Adobe should react adequately on this problem!
Thanks for confirming, Peter.
On both a 2010 17-inch and 2011 13-inch MacBook Pro both running macOS from High Sierra to Mojave and with all recent versions of Photoshop, the problem persists. It's a change in behavior from earlier versions that worked well, using a bright blue guideline visible against dark or light backgrounds.
Guess Adobe needs another round of Just Do It days.
Thanks, I've just done that.
Is this a Mac-only issue? I'm running Windows 10 and don't see any issues with guides; they appear as they should.
(I mean, it wouldn't shock me; those drivers Apple are putting out are abysmal based upon what I've been seeing here.)
Well, it's a Mac issue. On my two laptops whose GPUs used to be supported but no longer are. That's all I can confirm.
