Actions Photoshop doesn't recognize percentages when recording... any work around?

I'm trying to record an action that creates a phi thirds grid. Phi isn't equal columns, so the only way to do this is based on percentages—i.e., the margins would each be a percentage such as 38.34%. I can put all the percentages into the New Guide Layout dialog, but when it actually records the action it replaces the percentages with the equivalent pixel values. This makes the action useless as I can't use it on any image that has different pixel dimensions.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your response and since posting, I did figure out that this was the way to do it. And seeing that you were kind enough to share your action, here's mine—it's a little cleaner than yours in my opinion but feel free to use or discard it.


The primary difference is that mine doesn't create the unnecessary outside grid lines.
