Manual installation

If you’ve purchased GuideGuide from my site/Gumroad or Creative Market, it is possible to install GuideGuide manually with the files provided. I highly recommend you use the easy install method instead, but manual installation can be done as a last resort.

  1. Download the GuideGuide files from the link in the purchase or update email you received, and unzip them.
  2. Find the GuideGuide folder inside the files/manual-install folder.
  3. Copy the GuideGuide folder into the correct installation folder for your Creative Cloud version.
  4. Restart your Adobe apps. You will find GuideGuide at Window > Extensions > GuideGuide


“Signature is invalid” error

This error happens when you modify the contents of the GuideGuide folder. This includes adding and deleting files. There are many things that may cause files to be modified like user error, zip utilities, or Dropbox, it’s usually easiest to delete the installed files and try installing again.

GuideGuide doesn’t show up in Window > Extensions > GuideGuide

Be sure that your installation directory looks like extensions/GuideGuide/<GuideGuide files>. If it does not, GuideGuide will not load.

If you are using 64bit Windows, try using both the 32 and 64 bit installation folders. For an unknown reason, some installations require extensions to be installed in the 32bit installation folder.
