Smart guides are really interesting, but they ignore masks. It would be nice to have an option to take masks into consideration when making measurements

current workaround: using clipping masks

Agree with this: this is a pain to make measurements when using alpha or vector clipping masks! The whole layer surface is still taken into account instead of the one defined by the mask.
My workaround: "Apply Layer Mask" to the layer but this is a "destructive" step.

Does anyone has a better solution  to this issue?
