Scaling an illustration with grouped guides, the guides do not scale
Scaling an illustration with grouped guides, the guides do not scale, even when guides are unlocked. This feature used to work as recently as earlier versions of Illustrator CC 2017. This is a feature that my team and I relied upon to ensure that the correct white space was honored when releasing artwork to other agencies. I agree that locked guides in general should not scale. But if I create a box, convert it to a guide while unlocked, and group it to a logo or illustration, it should scale with the logo even if guides are locked. Illustrator used to agree with me and allowed this special behavior to happen. But recent updates have removed that feature. And, as a result it has rendered all previous master artworks for various clients obsolete.

Dang this issue is still in 2021, why???
Already proven in 2017
Hi Rob! I agree with your suggestion, but a quick fix for you is to use the scale tool instead of resizing with your mouse. Hope that helps.
