Now create a new layer and call it "object", on this layer we are going to put the object what will follow the guide.
Convert this object to a symbol, by highlighting it and pushing F8 or Modify > Convert to Symbol...
Then drag the symbol to the start of the guide. You will see the Registration of the symbol will change when on the line, and should snap onto the end.
