Hi. Today I updated to the latest version 23.4.1 and was unpleasantly surprised that the guides in my artboards were the same color as the canvas guides.

Naturally, in the previous version of the editor (23.3.2) in the Preferences > Guides, Grids & Slices... I had different colors set for the canvas and artboard guides. The Preferences are preserved in the new version and work correctly when I create new guides in the document. However, everything that was created earlier just rolled back to a single color.

I don't know if it makes sense to tell HOW inconvenient and destructive it is. Hundreds of documents with thousands of artboards. Yes, there is a new feature with customizing the color of the guides (which, I think, is the cause of my bug) - this is, of course, great ... But in Photoshop there is no way to quickly select all the guides of a selected artboard in order to somehow (albeit extremely painfully) roll back to the desired result.

 

Thus, the result I expected (which was not achieved) after the update:
In previously created documents, the colors of the guides (canvas and artboard) do not change spontaneously, but remain the same as those that were set in the Preferences when the document was last saved in the version preceding the update.

 

I did not find another way to return everything as it was, except to roll back the version to the previous one. Sadly. Hope you fix this bug soon.

I'm having a similar problem. When starting a new document with no artboards, any canvas guide I create via dragging from the ruler is originally an artboard (blue) guide until I switch to the move tool and click somewhere, then it'll turn into a canvas guide (cyan). I absolutely HATE this extra step. So much so I reverted back to the previous version until the guides are returned to normal.

An update to the issue @nrgzone reported: after speaking with our engineer, the behavior reports is as designed. When we drag a new guide, it is in a selected state. The selected guides have a blue color. When a user clicks somewhere else on the canvas, the guide is deselected; hence, the color is set to the color setting in preferences

Thanks, but it's not that. That's how it used to be, that it was in the selected state, but the default was a Canvas guide. Now, it's defaulting as an Artboard guide even though no artboards were created. When you select the move tool and click somewhere it then converts it to a Canvas guide, which seems like a bug. That behavior just started with the latest update.

I'm on Windows 10 by the way. If you drag a guide on the previous Photoshop versions and try it with the latest version you'll see what I mean.

This has impacted my productivity negatively. I use guides a LOT for my job, and now have to take the extra step to click elsewhere to deactivate the guide. This is beyond an annoyance.
