MB-Ruler

5.3.0.20180802

Package test results are passing.

This package was approved by moderator gep13 on 6/29/2019.

MB-Ruler offers several measurement instruments for measuring distances and angles on the screen.

All measurement instruments are displayed in an unobtrusive, almost-transparent layer above all other items on the screen. Therefore, you can integrate its use neatly with other applications while continuing to work with the applications below the MB-Ruler.

Features

  • triangular ruler
  • coordinate system
  • screen cutter (for the easy creation of screen shots)
  • RGB picker
  • screen loupe
  • overlay objects
  • remote interface

The general use of MB-Ruler is very easy. All functions can be accessed through the context menu (right mouse button) of the MB-Ruler Icon in the taskbar. Help on using MB-Ruler can be found here and here.

License

MB-Ruler is freeware for private and non-commercial use.
If you use MB-Ruler in a commercial environment, you must order a license after a test period of 14 days.

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
