I can't seem to add guides to a shared layer... is there a way to do this?
I use a shared layer where I've drawn lines to serve as guides. I lock the layer and have set it not print so I don't have to worry about it getting in the way. The only issue is that there isn't a quick key command to toggle the guide layer's visibility, so you have to toggle the Canvas and then click on the layer's visibility control.
A nice benefit is that I actually have several sets of guides/backgrounds - columns of equal size as well as a general grid showing common groupings of those columns (thirds, quarters etc.)

So after reading everything I can on the issue I have come to the conclusion that there is no "easy", built-in feature to make a master guide that spans across all canvases that can be turned on and off with a hotkey? Please tell me I am wrong.

Also, if Guides are to be treated more like objects, it could be interesting to enable the grouping of guides (drag select, and select "Group"), to maintain several guides at a consistent offset.
Of course treating Guides as objects could be taken quite a bit further, even to the extent that Guides might show Smart Guides relating to each other, allowing easy offsetting rows or columns of Guides with consistent spacing.
