How to convert guides to objects in Illustrator


Question

Can someone please suggest how to convert guides to objects in Illustrator? I have guides at the moment in a design that I am filling with color, however, it doesn't work for a clipping mask.

I followed Scott's suggestions. The first is not checked and release guides was not available for unchecking - grayed out.

Here is the image I designed.

I'm unable to do a clipping mask in either Photoshop or Illustrator with this.

View > Guides > Lock Guides <-- Uncheck that if it's checked.

Then select the guide you want and...

View > Guides > Release Guides

You'll have a standard path/shape then.
