when I check applications (if they fit some needs in design) I also measure some component dimensions (hight and width of a button for example).
Reason: every button needs to have the same size.
In the suggestion Display Ruler in Zoom (http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=22558.0
) I suggested to display a ruler in the zoom pane.
For measuring the dimensions the application Consic Ruler (http://www.stefanhey...n.de/ruler/index.htm
) has also a handy feature.
You press [F5] for a horizontal (and [F6] for a vertical) measurement.
At a horizontal measurement you see a vertical black line (full screen height).
Then you move the mouse to the beginning of the button, hold down the mouse cursor and drag the mouse to the end of the button.
While doing this, you see also a second vertical line at your mouse position and a horizontal line between them.
You also see the dimensions in pixels.
Feel free to download Consic Ruler and test this yourself.
This way I see quickly, if a component has an invalid size.
The "Display Ruler in Zoom" feature works for small dimensions (like the height of a button).
For bigger sizes I use the measurement .
Please add such a feature in Screenshot Captor.
Then I would need only one application and Screenshot Captor would get more powerful.
