can't remove guide lines
#1
Hello,

I have a couple guide lines on my canvas that are misplaced and annoying me, but I can't seem to get rid of them:

From what I recall, I think I should be able to hover over them, and the mouse icon should turn into a grabby thing that indicates I can click and drag the guide lines over to the ruler where they will disappear, but it's not doing so. For example, if I'm on the pencil tool and I hover over the guide line, the icon remains the pencil tool. If I click on the guide line, I just create a mark like the pencil tool is supposed to do. Thus, I can't seem to get rid of them.

Do I need to activate a specific tool in order to grab them or make them disappear? Is there some other way of making them disappear? Am I remembering correctly (that the mouse icon should turn into a grabby thing) and my instance of Gimp is somehow corrupt?

Thanks.

it is the move tool you want  Move

Hover over the guide, it changes color, click and drag to the ruler.

   

All guides go in Image -> Guides -> Remove All Guides

That seems to work. I thought I tried the move tool before, but upon trying it again, it seems to do the trick.

Thanks rich
