Ya know what could be a cool new feature....

How about the ability to put guidelines on layers. Sometimes I have many pieces I'm laying out on a sheet. By the time I'm done I must have like 100 guidelines. Would be kinda cool to put each piece on a layer with only the guidelines for it.

Or is this already possible and I haven't found out how?

I'd just like to disable them entirely. I never use them (I lay out by direct co-ordinates or by inference to existing geometry) but, as I use a touch screen monitor, it's incredibly easy to drag out a guide when I'm trying to drag a piece of clipart from the tab instead. I'm constantly going to the View menu to delete them.

I can see that for someone who uses a lot of guides an option to have them associated with layers would be a useful feature.
