    "It's great sorta, but not friendly"

    December 30, 2012  |   By Zenoian

    Version: MB-Ruler 4.0

    Pros

    it looks good, and supposedly works

    Cons

    There are over sixty or seventy key combinations to use this. I have no time to learn all that, when I just want a ruler.
    This is not user friendly.

    Summary

    I'm not a dense guy, the work I've done has been referenced internationally. All I wanted was an on screen ruler to size some documents. I downloaded the MB Ruler.. Man, was I excited. It LOOKS GREAT! All them moving angles, and lines. But I did not see any inches, so I looked for a menu... I still can't do something as simple as put it next to a doc, and just measure it. Something that simple, unless I'm really missing something, this thing just to sit next to anything, and measure, I have not figured it out. I use vid editing, Photoshop, some pretty high end programs. No prob measuring. This thing, I think you need to be a scientist. I am gonna look for a simple, you put it there, and read the inches. This thing killed 30 min, and I have not measured anything. Sometimes designers are too smart for their own good.

    I've drawn in 3D, in cad and sketchup. No issues. This, like I said, it looks great. Simplicity, forget it.

    "Looks clean on desktop - Claro toolbar hidden baggage"

    December 16, 2012  |   By danajohnson

    Version: MB-Ruler 4.0

    Pros

    Screen appearance is good. Installs with only one warning to accept/decline a separate toolbar which is not required. A simple decline provides ambiguous continuation of the acceptance of the ruler installation.
    Gives a right click menu list of optional parts and actions.
    Combination measures of RGB, angles, or distance helps in actual use.
    Seems to not slow the other work underway.

    Cons

    Toolbar should be ackowledged prior to installing- but is given a clear presence early on with very tiny print describing a massive change of settings and added 'Third Party software' push attempts.
    The ambiguous selection of a 'Decline' in the installation to continue to accept the installation of the ruler software is disappointing but fairly routine for the 'for profit' hidden companies that try to dominate the 'free software' industry.
    Once past the tiny fine print description of a alternative toobar and settings change offer, the return to the ruler install allows a sane process with no repeated subterfuge.

    Angle measures may not be offered beyond the 90* increments seen initially.

    I have limited experience as yet, and other returns to add-ons or settings losses may occur at a later timing. Initial results only the two program products, with only the ruler remaining after the 'Decline' install selection.

    Summary

    The unwritten use of hidden and unexpected added baggage is not reasonable, but appears to be limited to a single 'trip-wire' of a selection of a 'Decline' as a statement of 'accept' when making install choices.
    The good appearance of the ruler graphics could have a 'custom' figure start angle, but seems to be limited to 90* initial measure orientation positioning. I may be missing the method available if present.
    Haven't tried to scale or detail repeat measures with MB-Ruler as yet.

    If later upgrades and timing do not return the subterfuge attempts of Claro it could be a very good ruler software device.
    The background of a failure to select the 'Decline' button gives a warning of Claro 'sharing' your bandwidth and processor activity, addititonal to a forcing of software ads and 'push' techniques.

    Thanks to the careful author for their hard work and dedication.
    MB-Ruler separately seems a welcome addition in my computer.
    Would give 4-5 stars without the baggage.
