An elaborated article about hiding guides in Illustrator:

When working with vector artwork in Illustrator, it can be helpful to hide guides so that you can focus on the artwork itself. There are a few different ways to hide guides in Illustrator, but the quickest and easiest way is to use the keyboard shortcut “H” (for “Hide Guides”).

PRO TIP: The shortcut to hide guides in Illustrator is Cmd+; (Mac) or Ctrl+; (Win). Hiding guides temporarily can be a helpful way to get a different perspective on your artwork. However, if you forget to unhide them before you print or save your file, the guides will be included in the output.

If you want to unhide guides later, you can use the keyboard shortcut “G” (for “Show Guides”). Additionally, you can use the “View” menu to select “Hide Guides All” or “Hide Guides Specific To Type.”

The “Hide Guides” command is especially helpful if you’re working on a project that requires a specific layout or size for your artwork. By hiding the guides, you can keep the artwork consistent across multiple documents and easily change the size or layout without having to redraw the artwork.

Overall, hiding guides in Illustrator is a quick and easy way to keep your artwork organized and consistent.
