Is there a way to enter the value of the horizontal or vertical position of the guide? I currently set them by zooming up the window then dragging back and forth until I get the value closest to what I want.

Hi

There is no way to place a guide by entering the coordinate.

Always thought this was something that could be improved - as the OP says, dragging back and forth is a bit hit and miss! In CAD programs you'd have a small box somewhere showing the dimensions - dragging a guide activates the box and you then have the option to enter a dimension and hit return or ignore and drag manually. Something to add to the want list?
