How do I create a guide for all layers?

Is it possible to create a guide that appears on every layer of my document?

Hi @jjaco,

Guides are a property of the canvas, so all layers of a single canvas do share that canvas’s guides. Are you wanting to share guides between canvases? If so, I believe we have a feature request on file for that. If you’d like to add your voice to the discussion, you can email us at and we’ll be happy to add your thoughts on that!

In case it helps, it is possible to drag a guide from one canvas to another. There’s also more information about creating guides in the online documentation here:
