Light blue artboard guides – script for Adobe Photoshop CC 2017

Postby alextul » Tue Jul 18, 2017 4:31 pm

The script that you see creates a cyan guide at the left edge of the layer (or document).
Cyan guides are always visible, and light blue hides when switching artboards.
I would like to change the script so that it creates a light blue guide instead of cyan. How to do it?

Cyan canvas guidesLight blue artboard guides

Code: Select all

//Select Active Layer 
var docRef = app.activeDocument, 
activeLayer = docRef.activeLayer; 
activeLayerCoordinates = activeLayer.bounds; 
function traceGuide(guide) { 
var orientation = ''; 
if(guide === 0 || guide === 2) { 
orientation = Direction.VERTICAL; 
} else if(guide === 1 || guide === 3) { 
orientation = Direction.HORIZONTAL; 


// Trace top guide
