Avast anti-virus prompted that the application is dangerous and I should run it in it's sand box. Other than that, the ruler ran smoothly and did what it's supposed to. I'll keep using it.

Pixel Ruler 2.1.1 did everything I needed to help with the detail layout of Microsoft Silverlight controls for a better customer UI experience. I would strongly recommend this product to others.

It's nice that nothing has to installed on my PC - I added Pixel Ruler to my browser favorites bar so I can get back to the download if I ever need it again. I don't do web design and I just needed to know how wide a button was while I was messing around with some javascript, but now that I know this tool is available I may find other uses for it in the future. Thanks!

Awesome tool. Wished I had it years ago:)

Works like a dream: measures pixels, stays on the top window. If it's too short you can extend it. Great for web designing.

I use it all the time for page layout. Excellent tool.

I downloaded it. It helped a bit for something I needed. Thanks. Numbering was a bit small for my older eyes though. needed to get a colleague to confirm the pixel length.

Also can't figure out where the tool is to use it again if I need it.

Great ruler, simple, does just what I need. :)

Simple and effective tool - very useful when troubleshooting layouts etc.
Be nice if you could change from pixels to mm, inches, picas etc - but a good, lightweight, simple tool none the less.

I have already found this ruler to be a great asset when trying to confirm the pixel size on website devolopment.

Thank you so much - I will use it regularly to check cells, tables etc., rather than keep opening boxes to check.

Great app!
It's a standalone, does what it says it does and it is very handy.
It's the digital equivalent of carrying a tape measure in your pocket!

This is a great tool, but was unable to save the program directly to my computer for future use.

Haven't put it to use yet, but I did plunk around with it a little, and it seems to be exactly what I was looking for. Handy Dandy little tool..I plan to use it in conjunction with certain things I do in Photoshop before importing images into the program. Thanks so much and good luck to you guys!

Hi there --
How can I download pixel ruler so that it does not go away when I have to reboot? I would like to have it on my desktop.
Thank you.

Nice simple product does as it says. Really handy for me as I needed a way to check smaller browser sizes eg 800X600 without having to adjust my display settings.

Pixel Ruler 2.1 is simple and elegant solving my problem with confirming actual sizes of assets across multiple resolutions. Nicely done.

Pixel Ruler did exactly what I downloaded it for, it is a simple ruler in pixels that you can move around on your screen when you need it. I recommend it.

I am a freelance consultant and trainer involved in education and wanted a pixel ruler to help students investigate the size of graphics on the web for a unit that they were doing on web graphic design. The software fits the bill and is an excellent resource, one that I will be recommending to other schools and colleges.

It was the wrong size. You might want to recheck that.

Very good tool, it has helped me at the crucial moment when I needed something like this! I'm using it and will be spreading the name across my friend circle.
Very good work! Keep coming with such innovative tools. Makes life and work easy.
Pixer ruler is just "da best"

i HAVEn't quite figured out how to measure with it...the logo I want to measure is longer than ruler...

Simple to use. Works as intended.

Pixel Measurement

Its a good tool to use for pixel measurement. But i feel measuring a distance in between of screen to end is difficult as we need to do some manual calculations. Also if we want to check both X and Y axis together then its not possbile. If it could have some functions like Measure IT (Firefox) then will really be great to use.

Solid little tool.

This is a great tool that anyone doing anything graphically related online should be using. There's not much to say here - it does what it is supposed to do and works very well as described.

OK little Ruler

Seems to do what is intended, a few observations:
1. On first install an empty ruler was displayed. I had to select a colour before the numbers displayed - worked OK after that.
2. It is frustrating that the ruler is limited to 1300ish pixels and does not completely cover the full screen width.
3. Would be nice to toggle between real world measurements (mm) and Pixels
4. Would be nice to toggle the graduations between top/bottom, left/right - for this reason, it would be better if the line at the point of measurement stretched across the full ruler (so you can measure from either side).

Pixel Ruler Saves Sanity

Going mad trying to make images fit into spaces I was previously unable to measure. Guesstimating and trial and error causing all sorts of wasted time. Then I found pixel ruler and I was able to quickly knock over things that had been bugging me for weeks. Great product. Few intricacies that take a bit of getting used to but amazing product.

Simple Helpful Tool

This is the second pixel ruler that I have tried. This ruler is small and easy to use. It has both horizontal and vertical measuring. All the buttons are easy to access on the ruler itself. The thing that I like about this ruler is the guide line which extends above/under the ruler. It's helpful when you have to measure things. The guide line is moved by your cursor and can be frozen to where you want it to stay.

My only problem with this Pixel Ruler is that you have to register it. It is free but if you don't register you get sent to a website. I have been unable to figure out how to register but I have only used it for a short while.

Helpful Tool

With Pixel Ruler it is easy to measure various items on your screen both horizontally and vertically. There is a button on the ruler to switch back and forth for this.

The program opens up fast and closes fast with a button located on the ruler itself, it does not go into the task bar area. You can change the color of the ruler as well.

I like this ruler but I wish it came with guide lines that extended beyond the ruler itself up the screen. Also the ruler could be a little bit smaller. (Actually the ruler that comes with the Miotoolbox does both of these things but you have to pay for that program.)

Good Tool

I do a lot of interface design, very handy tool.

Though i wish it was more customizable width, height and metrics (points, inches and cm would be nice)
