Welcome to MB-Ruler

MB-Ruler helps you to measure distances and angles on the screen and distances on a map.

The set square with integrated protractor is almost transparent, so you can have it on the screen, while you are working with the applications below.

Additionally it has a screen loupe function, a RGB value window and you can place temporary points, lines, rectangles, ellipses, polylines, texts and bitmaps as markers on the screen.

You need a more enhanced measure solution?

Then have a look a MB-Ruler Pro:
  • separate measure window
  • 31 measure instruments (circle, ellipse, polygons, distance "point-to-line", rectangle, ...)
  • measure in coordinate systems using different units and scales for X any Y axis (linear, logarithmic and inverse)
  • export of the measure values to a CSV file
  • predefined measure scales
  • developer interface for the integration in other applications (remote API)

comments of other users about MB-Ruler

  • I use it after scanning an image. This often is "angled" and I have to rotate it a bit (in PaintShopPro). Here comes MB-ruler : I can see exactly how much degrees I have to rotate ! Thanks ! (Roelof B.)
  • Just what i was looking for! (user from Spain)
  • Your ruler is a very good help indeed! It's a beautiful simpel tool. (Truls W.)
  • Hi, I realy like your ruler program. One of the most useful programs I seen and I use it on graphics and aerial photos or Topo maps. Great job. (E Hines)
  • MB-Ruler is a valuable tool for anyone involved in the digital graphics production of printing materials or Web site design. (Mike T.)
  • ... your MB-Ruler program is just one fine piece of computer programming. I am very happy to have accidentally found it when searching for a "computer ruler". For the things that I need it for it is absolutely the best I could hope for. I am actually using it to measure angles and distances on stock chart prices (perhaps a little bit "off" of what you may have designed it for .) ...(Jeff R.)
  • I was looking at some 6 other rulers before trying yours. It is the best!!! (Ferdi L.)
  • I was euforic when I used your utility. This was the toolprogram I was looking for, for weeks. I have used it to check all the positions of my graphics, buttons, seperationlines etc on my webpages. All new (?) programs are copies of excisting software and not always better ones. It's a refreshing to see a program which I have never seen and which is 100% usefull ! Great tool & thank you very much. Patrick B. Antwerp (Belgium)
