Problem with using guide Lines

I am a beginner on SU. I have the 2022 Pro and using windows. trying to use the guide line. I have watched about 3 videos on the subject. My question is,when I use the guideline command it doesn’t show the guide lines going to infinity. I can make the guidelines no problem but the guideline only goes to where I click to complete the line.

Sounds like you are making guide points with tails, these are created when you start at an endpoint. Try pulling your guides from an edge not a corner.

got it! Thanks a lot. My memory doesn’t work very well right now because of a serious covid illness.
