Define scale

MB-Ruler can measure distances in the units
  • pixel
  • centimeter
  • inch
  • points
  • twips
  • or a user defined scale
Maßstab definieren Use the popup menu of MB-Ruler and choose the optiona page "distance&angle" in the item Options to set the scale to pixel, centimeter, inch, points or twips.
For all units (except pixel), you have to calibrate MB-Ruler, as it is not possible to calculate the real physical values from the data stored inside the operating system. Choose one of the value and move the slider "correction factor" until the values in the field below are correct.
