Pixel Ruler for Windows

This is a great little Pixel ruler


Learnt about this from dk00111... here


Am using it a lot at the moment, and will post some pictures soon.


This is a Windows application
But it needs Microsoft .NET Framework (89.2MB) to run, if you have not got it installed.


You can run the program from a shortcut in Windows and/or from Launchy in Firefox.


Once the ruler is on screen it stays there.(until you ask it to exit)

So you can run any application you want and the ruler stays just where it is.


All the controls are on the ruler in little icons left and right.

Useful is that it can make itself tranparent.

And well many other things.

You can change the length of the rule, you can make it horizontal or vertical.

Seems to be pretty bomb proof.



A Ruler for Windows is an on-screen pixel ruler for your PC. It provides your choice between a rich wood grain ruler, or at the touch of a button, a clear see-through plastic ruler. As you can see through the clear plastic ruler you can even continue your typing under it. Special 2x, 3x, and 4x modes allow you to take a snapshot of your primary screen and magnify it so you can more easily measure between very fine points.

The ruler can be flipped horizontally or vertically, resized to an exact length or resized by dragging it to a desired length. You can click near a tick to have a measuring line automatically drawn at an exact location. The question mark button allows you to learn more about other features and functions. Version 1.1 includes various new functions, including keyboard controls to match ruler controls
