    I hate to ask but is the Guides layer locked?

    What would be best to have different guide lines with different colors.

    fair question but no, it's not...

    here's a screen shot - guide layer unlocked. hid, and guide visible

    the guide line seems much thinner than previous versions, and sometimes disappears on scroll even when the layer is not hid

    Definitely weird. My Pro+ is as for all earlier versions.

    I am beginning to think pro+ has issues with some hardware - i am going to check this with my other rigs, one of which is RTX20 and the other is intel graphics [laptop]

    I'm on windows 10 20H2 but that should not make a difference

    ok got it - it's a visual C++ redistributable issue - something squiffed in my desktop installation [as far as pro+ is concerned anyway] - rolled back the build and the guides are fine

    on installing originally it asked to update visual C++, twice in succesion, which is thinking abouit it suspicious - installing on the rolled back build, it did not ask to update visual C++ and the guides work....

    there ya go... time for some houskeeping...

    btw - it seems in pro+ I can neither hide the guide layer, nor drag the guidelines to new positions both of which i could in ver 15/16 ... ?
    No problems here either HD

    well turns out to be simple, and actually not new - if you have the outer margin set high [upwards of 16000 pix, it seems to vary] then the guides mis-behave;

    was the same up to a point in ver 15.1 - I just happened to set up a default template in pro+ with a high outer margin value, don't think I ever noticed it before, or maybe forgot... like you do... I think...
