Limit smart guides to current artboard

I work with artboards a lot, both in Photoshop and in Illustrator. I love them, particularly when creating multiple sizes of the same artwork.
I also love smart guides. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to love each other. When I work with multiple artboards the smart guides align to objects placed on other artboards, sometimes aligning to objects 4 artboards over.

Is there a way (or even a workaround) to limit smart guides to the current/active artboard? I found this question in a post on the adobe forum from 5 years ago, but no solution.

Answer

I think the only way to limit what is snapped to a smart guide is changing what is in your screen view. So if you only want objects to snap to what is in the current artboard, then you need to zoom in to only show that artboard.
