    While designing web pages i often end up inundated with different guides for different parts of the site.
    Is there a way to group guides and hide and show different ones at different times, so i could hide all the header related guides if im working on the side bar for example.

    Many Thanks


    not that I know of, but that would be an awesome feature request for CS6 :)
