I use the "new guide" option on a regular basis. For each guide placed the dialogue box has to be reopened which is very time consuming, even if adding a keyboard shortcut. I see that the latest CC update has the option to create a regular grid but I often create guides at non regular intervals. It would probably be a simple change to keep the dialogue box open for another input and then click another button to close when finished.

Hi Pat,

Show Ruler (View > Rulers) and drag from the horizontal/vertical ruler to create a horizontal guide (http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/usin...), does this help?

There is more: New Guide Layout and New Guide from Shape in Photoshop CC

Thanks, I know about the new guide features in cc but they do not help as I wish to create irregular spaced guides. Dragging guides is not accurate unless you zoom in a long way which is more hassle.

Actually dragging a guide and having keyboard input at the same time would be another great feature !.
