Ruler Tool

Post by Svengali » 18 Nov 2011, 00:37

Here's a simple tool to measure the number of pixels between two points you select in the frame.

RulerTool.tvpx
To install:
Drag TVPX to interface and drop. You should see the ruler button in the Ruler Tool panel.

To use:
Click the icon, then click and drag the crosshair cursor, drawing a line along the length you want to measure.
The resulting line's length in pixels will be displayed in the infobar at the bottom of the TVPaint interface.
Click again to dismiss the line and reload the tool you were using.

Sven

any problem? post a description... thanks

Thanks Svengali, this is something I never dared ask for.

Hi,

it works on 9.5.21 on Win7 64 - no problems :-).
Before I used the line tool and the coordinates panel to measure, but your tool is more comfortable. Thanks.

Oh, there might be one misbehavior when using the ruler. When the ruler-line is visible you are not able to quit using the top right "X".

It's a nice tool, but unfortunately not as useful as could be. It would be much better, if it could display the length while dragging, not after. If there is no way to know the distance while dragging, it's impossible to repeat the same measurement, or to adjust it...
