How do I get my guides to work across all layers in Illustrator CS6?

Is there any way that I can get guides to stay visible across *all* layers in Illustrator CS6, instead of disappearing when I turn layers off? I'd rather not replace them every time I add a new layer. My google-fu is failing due a bad combination of search terms that keeps returning tutorials. Thank you!

Best answer: You can put the guides on their own separate layer, and turn it on and off as you please.

Best answer: Kabanos is correct. I do this all the time.
On existing documents, just make a new "guides" layer and move your guides form the other layers to the new one.
