there you are. if you click where the cursor is, the object becomes selected and not the guide.

Would you agree it's ok if the guide cursor picks up the guide, no matter wether it is underneath or on top of the page?

dont know right now.
either the guide cursor must not be shown
or the guide is selected although it is in the background.

what do you think?

I am encline to think it is preferable to be able to be able to pick up the guide at any time and on any object unless you make the guides invisible (show/hide guides).

Now, if one is working with the guides underneath, I still think the same.

The idea behind this is we must make the work as easy and intuitive as possible. Guides are there to help. Sometimes we want to see them, sometimes we don't. And we want to be able to move them around at will, without thinking about the steps needed to pick them up.

I think its too early to tell. For me its ok as it is but they can get in the way. No need to rush to a conclusion, we have much more important work to sort out.
