    Can anyone help with a silly problem, the other day the guides locked themselves in the Flexisign software so when i drag them out they just disappear, i have went through all the different things i can think off ie. page set up and view guides etc but where is has the tick at ‘lock guides’ i cant deselect it and the other options are not working, can anyone tell me how to unlock them

    If it’s Illustrator, check that you have selected the layer that you want to put guides on.

    Hi John,

    I have flexi as well – and went to check. On one of my files, I had the same as you whereby the locked symbol on guides came on – but when opening a new file, the guides were fine. As a stopgap can you cut and paste the existing elements of your file into a new file?

    If I get a chance I’ll try and take another look

    Had another look on flexi (am on version 11 sp6) . Went to view/show/show guides. That turned the guides on and off.

    If you are saying that your option to turn on (or off) show guides is greyed out then not sure what to suggest…
