Rulers and guide-lines.

Postby Kilmannan » Sat Jul 12, 2014 9:03 am

I've had a search around but there's so much on this forum now I'm finding it hard to identify if it's been answered.

I don't suffer from OCD but two years of Minecraft have given me a slight twitch when I see things out of alignment. Are there any ruler features in PA or could they be introduced? I'm thinking something along the lines off an X and Y axis line that goes to the edge of the screen, the center being you rmousepoint. That way you can instantly see how the block lines up with everything else.

Hi Kilmannan,

There is no way to toggle a ruler or guide that follows the mouse, but you can go into planning mode: walls and use the guide that appears when you drag your mouse. Do a search on the Mantis Bug Tracker and see if someone made a mention of it there. I have full-on OCD, so these kinds of things get me too!
