I have some artboards that I want to rearrange in order to even out the spacing between them. The trouble is, when I Rearrange All Artboards Illustrator completely ignores my guides, leaving the guides in their original positions and rendering them useless, as they are no longer positioned relative to the artwork.
↑ "Move Artwork with Artboard" is ticked.
Layers are not locked.
And yet, this is the result (artwork not shown, only layout and guides):
As you can see, there are artboards to the left now missing their guides, and guides to the right that have gone astray from their artboards.
Why Illustrator's default behavior is to ignore the guides while moving the artwork is beyond comprehension, but that is what's happening.
Here is a question similar to mine, but that question is not specifically about "rearranging", and the answers for that question have not worked for me. Release Guides is greyed out. Dragging out my guides while using the Artboard Tool did not work either. View > Rulers > Change to Global Rulers also did not work.
View > Guides > Unlock Guidesthen select the guides, then
View > Guides > Release Guidesright? Just choosing to release guides does nothing if the guides aren't first selected.
