There are a few situations which make the automatic guides unusable.
This is unfortunate since they’re the only guides we can use in Mockups!
I captured the follow behaviour:
(Hopefully this forum supports animated gifs - I’ll find out once I hit submit!)
Either way, the lowest field does not automatically line up with the field above it - it’s actually aligning with either a field 7 fields above, or another one 11 fields above.
I might be alone in this, but I would assume that automatic guides would prioritise those objects closer to the one being moved, rather than apparently random objects half way across the screen, but this hasn’t been my experience.
Edit: Forgot to mention: This is important to me because if I’m able to align the field correctly with just the mouse then I can take advantage of the very handy feature which lets me Duplicate a recently moved item and “repeat” that shift in position - perfect for placing many fields.
If I let go of the mouse and move this field manually with the keyboard, I can no longer take advantage of that feature.
