How to move guides with artboard?


Question

If I have multiple artboards and I want to move a board, how can I select both the board and it's guides and move them at the same time?

Currently I can move the board with its content, but can't select the guides and hence have to manually set them again.

It is not a frequent problem, however sometimes one wants to move an artboard with all the guides.

The solution is not perfect, but worked for me:

Before I drag the artboard I "release the guides" -

View->Guides->Release guides

After I dragged the artboard I "make the guides" from converted shapes (+ select the lines again):

View->Guides->Make guides

Before setting your guides, switch to the Artboard Tool (Shift + O), then drag out your guides. You'll notice when you do this that the guides will finish at the edge of the artboard, instead of running off over the entire work area.

When you move your artboard, the guides will travel with it.
