Drag guides from anywhere
It would be great to be able to drag guides from anywhere, not just the top and left of an art board. Sometimes I am editing a master component on the pasteboard and I cannot grab any guides. Other times I am zoomed in or at the bottom of a long page and I have to zoom out go and grab a guide and then find my place again. I would like to be able to get guides no matter where I am, I am thinking of allowing them to be pulled out globally from the top of the interface where the home/design/prototype buttons are and from the left where the layers/tools are.

I've finally bit the bullet on Adobe Subscription. Started working in XD and immediately noticed how stupid this guides implementation is! Put them to the edge of the window not the friggin artboard!

This is really a frustrating topic. When you're working in the middle or bottom of an artboard the it is incredibly interrupting to scroll to the top of the artboard, then drag a guide somewhere near you need it and finally place it at the correct position. This needs to be fixed asap
Sorry, but is there a trick do set guides on bottom of the page and zoomed in, so that no borders of the page are visible? There have to be a trick otherwise i can't explain why Adobe didn't changed this till now … and just 12 votes …

Hey you know what would be a great idea, if you could use guides to guide from any side of the art board, so the user does not have to constantly zoom in or zoom out; even better, why not ALLOW GUIDES TO BE DRAGGED FROM THE TOP OF THE SCREEN AND LEFT OF THE SCREEN ON THE GLOBAL LEVEL LIKE SAY PS!
A designer needs to be able to quickly pull-in and push-out a guide while at any level of zoom on the artboard.
At the moment just vertical guides are possible to drag from the left, when I'm zoomed in. Please make horizontal guides to drag from the top (and bottom) and vertical guides also from the right. At the moment, I have to zoom out, place the guide horizontal guide and zoom in to place it exactly. Two unnecessary steps that make me slow …!! These small missing things make me wonder how the Adobe XD crew do not realize …
