According to the Inkscape's Wiki page
, it states:
Guides cannot be locked, and guides are global to the layers instead of bound to individual layers as they are in Illustrator.
May I ask why
guides cannot be locked? Are there any advantage to that over Adobe Illustrator? Why could it not be coded in Inkscape? Why could it not be coded so that the guides can be locked into a single layer instead of being global?
Note that I am using Kubuntu 12.04 Linux distribution, so paying $$$ for Adobe Illustrator just to get around Inkscape's limitation is not worth it for me.
The reason why I want to lock the guides is when it comes to sketching 2D character animation in front and side before I use it in Blender 3D as a background.
It's not my place to label Inkscape as half-baked (I mean, no offense to the open source purists -- well, I am an open source purist -- heh
) but when there are setbacks or limitations, I might look around the menus to see if there are any workarounds and use the Internet as a last resort.--
