Bug Description

In several occasion there is need to duplicate a slanted guide (this is possible by hand giving the same angle). In the same way it would be very helpful if guides could be spaced automatically. For example something like placing 5 guides at angle 15 1 cm apart from this point. Distances of individual guides could be editable (all this can be made now by hand but it is time consuming).

Workaround: Turn on needed snapping options; drag a new guide to intersect with guide to duplicate; Shift-Drag to rotate the new guide so that the other point also intersects with old guide; drag to move the duplicated guide to desired position.

Apart for the need of duplicating guide at the same angle, there is also the need of creating new guide with the same origin but another angle. Currently, this require to drag a new guide to the origin and later to rotate it. But this is not practical when the origin is out of sight.

As far as I know, both duplicate and angled guides are not possible in version 1.0.

I'll close this without migrating.

Isn't that why this ticket exists? Or do you mean that a decision has been made that the guide-duplication feature won't be developed?
