    Ctrl or Cmd + ; hides and shows the guides. Just a quick shortcut I find useful instead of always having to drag them off the stage every time.

    Love it, thanks.  I am going to do some of the same setup for some Aviation items.  Thanks Again

    Setting the ruler to “Percent” makes the guides snap at 50% too.
