"not very useful"

April 24, 2010  |  By philmarchand

 |  Version: MB-Ruler 3.3

Pros

can measure accurately in pixel units on the screen

Cons

impossible to calibrate to inches accurately; very bad user interface

Summary

seems like "almost" what i was looking for. I tried to use it to measure distances on a drawing on a .pdf file. The problem is that I could not get it calibrated accurately.
The one way, through the "options" menu, was not fine enough to calibrate to better than 0.1".
The other way, with the "scale" popup, did not work.
Using windows XP

I have used simpler measuring tools in the past.

Pros

Can measure lengths & widths at different angles, different units, etc. Can measure angles & coordinates. Highly configurable, too! Feature packed & fun to play with. Contrary to another's review, absolutely NO spyware detected!
