Obviously a lot of thought went into this little app. It does what it's supposed to do extremely well.

I works so well, I'd have a hard time making any useful suggestion to it!

Works fine on 10.6.2. Unfortunately, as the notes for the latest release (over two years ago) state, the transparency feature has been removed (although the commands are still available in the menu).

I don't know what I'd do without this app. As a web designer, it's invaluable for determining available screen real estate. Thanks so much for this - I've been using it since the first version.

While on the subject of angles, a radius tool would be fabulous for maps.

Great tool. Very easy to use. Came in handy for me just after this version was released.

Thanks for the work in making this! Just need a universal version now.

Thank you so much for making a ruler app that actually gets physical measurements (in, cm, etc.) correct. I tried to get the author of G-Ruler to implement this feature, but he didn't seem to understand the issue.
