    While being able to drag guides from rulers is desired, the primary reason is having a frame of reference for scale, particularly when designing for tablets & laptop/desktop resolutions. It'd be really nice to have the ruler be based on whatever artboard is in the center of the screen (changing if a user selected a different artboard even if it isn't centered). Really hope this gets added at some point... It's difficult to go without after working in Photoshop and Illustrator for so long.

    how utterly ridiculous. something so intuitive and normal. like my left arm. you're adobe. master of all things digital authoring. was someone asleep at the wheel when designing XD?

    It's utterly insane that this is unincluded feature needs to be upvoted in order for it to be implemented. The only thing crazier is how many years this deficiency has been called out with no action being taken.

    Why rulers? let people do plugins. Seriously, don't transform XD into another photoshop.
    There are more important things such as focusing on collaboration, symbols and design systems.

    I'm being yelled at by my boss to switch to Sketch because Adobe XD is not capable of competing with them. I don't really want to because I have been with Adobe for over 15 years, so I'm hoping they pull through for all of our sake.

    How can this not be there from DAY 1, this is absolutely ridiculous. CC is a complete waste of money as it currently stands.

    It needs guides because the automated guides just miss some things. Especially when the design gets crowded.

    Now that Adobe Creative Cloud's web based extract is being retired. I think that's a dumb move, but If Adobe wants us to us adobe XD they really need to add these features. I need to be able to move my photoshop designs and be able to place them properly.

    Really? We are really asking for rules? It should be in the fisrt version! Come on ADOBE!

    Adobe has clearly lost sight of the end users needs. The irony is that a piece of UX software is missing key UX elements.

    What a stupid thing to ask!! Doesn't adobe know how much this feature is important?

    Wow. And this admin trying to get us to feel like newbs "Do you want rulers for GUIDES, you children?"

    No. We want rulers because knowing where things go and how big they are is basic, no-brain fundamental, especially in web design.
