After all these years why does photoshop still not have the ability to save guides with new document presets?


Or maybe someone knows how?

You can save a template file (.psdt) that has saved guides. You can also save a guide preset and even apply guides via a script if you want.

If you'll notice that some of the New Document presets have guides built-in to the preset, but when creating a New Document preset there is no option to save guides. Look at the Video presets.

Actually, you used to be able to do this by edting the New Doc Sizes.txt file. You could even make new doc presets, without opening Photoshop, this way. I'm not sure when this was removed.
