Ruler Auto Shape

Posted September 19, 2004 by senocular

Version: Fireworks MX 2004

The Ruler Autoshape is more of a utility than a shape. It helps you measure lengths and angles across your document. The Ruler is adjusted using the yellow control points. These let you position and angle the ruler into a desired position. Blue control points are mainly for reference providing a location of segments along the ruler's base (length is measured from the two blue control points at both ends of the ruler). Clicking on these will add another blue control point in the division of the ruler. You can have up to 10. Holding CTRL (Option Mac) will change the units from the default of pixels to the units used by the document (cm or inch).
