Add rulers... or something like that to the sitebuilder!

In case we want to place some elements exactly on the same place on every page it becomes a bit difficult/
for example, i often have to try again and again to math the width of my 2 column text to other pages :(
Horizontal and vertical rulers, or a similar reference scale would be handy.
Just a suggestion!

Hi Monica,

That would definitely be a helpful addition to the site builder! I will forward this feature request onto our team for consideration in future releases.

Thanks,
Emmy

Hey Monica,

If you are using Firefox, they have an add-on called MeasureIt which does exactly what you want! Click the link to download it.

Why certainly!

Use this add-on to draw out a ruler to get the pixel width and height of any elements on a webpage.
Once installed it lies in the corner of your firefox screen as a small icon.

Have to find the width and height of an object when your browsing?- No problem, all you have to do is click on the icon and it gives the the option to drag out the ruler and it gives you the width & height of the object.

Hi Monica...

I think that you were away and studying when I made this thread but I had thought of something like this last Summer. Great minds think alike ;)
