Really nice addon. Finally i found one. I gave 4 starts just because I believe will be perfect(as an update in the future) to have the ruller from top FIXED. I mean if you scroll the page, the ruller to remain up.
Anyway, I really appreciate your effort to build this amazing Addon.
I removed it from Firefox 4 on XP Pro. It may have been conflicting with something, but the rulers wouldn't move predictably with the cursor. I am also trying it out on a MacBook Pro with Firefox 4. It takes a long time to load and sometimes gives me an unresponsive script error. I will probably delete it from the Mac too.
This is a nice layout tool, but I'd like something a bit more precise. Here are some features I'd love to see in future versions of this add-on: 1. set guides by input field. I.E. select a guide you've dragged out and edit it's position via input field for exact X or Y coordinates. This will really help designers and developers attempting to pixel perfect match an existing guide structure from a .PSD file. The options panel XY locator for the mouse is not terribly accurate for this purpose.
2. a pop up toot tip that measures the distance between two guides on the same axis. similarly a pop-up that gives the exact position of the currently hovered guide.
3. the ability to pull guide from fixed rulers after scrolling. That would really improve the overall UI.
4. Ruler detail flexibility based on user Zoom-level. Have the #foxguide_pullFromLeft and #foxguide_pullFromTop swap background images based on the user style sheet zoom level to show more detail the way that Photoshop does.
Although it's a bit limiting at the moment, however FoxGuide has some amazing potential for developers and designers alike! Keep up the good work guys I look forward to the next update.
Simple are works real good. I had a bug in mine where I could only drag the horizontal marker lines down if the screen was scrolled all the way to the top. If not it would show the mouse icon change to allow me to drag a new marker line. Other than that the addon is great!
