As you can probably guess from the name, thus us a utility that creates a virtual ruler on your desktop, useful for easier reading of spreadsheet data (Excel, Access, SQL etc.), and developed to satisfy our own needs. Programmers may use it as a help or check tool with object positioning. Optional scale provides information on the size of pictures, either on screen or printed in desired resolution.
As any ruler is more suitable for estimating than for actually measuring distances, Desktop Ruler incorporates a Precise Measuring Tool with adjustable zoom, capable of pixel level precision measuring of on-screen distances in any angle.
