    What are the perks of using GuideGuide, as opposed to, or in tandem with PS's "Guide Layout",

      The biggest winner for me is using it with Artboards. Since I use many artboards in my designs - the 'Guide Layout' feature in Photoshop seems to just create the guides in the center of the canvas, instead of on the selected artboard that I'm on.

      GuideGuide does what I want, which is creates the guides on the artboard you have currently selected.

      I used to recommend GuideGuide to my colleagues. But I find the GuideGuide panel performs significantly slower ever since Adobe CC. So I replace it with Guide Layout in my workflow now.

      I now hook Guide Layout with some Keyboard Maestro marcos, which is faster than selecting "Guide Layout" from menu.

        It takes 5-7 seconds to be expanded from a collapsed panel, which is very annoying for a simple task indeed.
