Hi All - I’m a Forum noobie and this is my first post so please excuse any missteps.
I have recently switched from Windows to MacOS (Big Sur 11.6). For years I used Iconico Calipers in Windows to measure objects on the screen. Unfortunately, Calipers is not available for Mac.
I want to be able to measure the size/length of objects on the computer screen.
I have purchased Onde Rulers and am sure it will do what I need it to. But, I cannot figure out how to calibrate the ruler’s units. I need to set the ruler so that it, for example, knows that a 400 pixel long object on the screen is 8" long in the real world. Then when I move the ruler and measure an object half that size (200 px) the ruler will read 4".
When I try to calibrate units on the Onde Rulers I am not able to make a ratio between pixels and inches stick. If I input a number of pixels and then a number of inches, the number of pixels updates. If I try to do it the other way around, setting the inches first, that number changes when I enter a new pixels count.
I would love too hear from someone who is familiar with Onde Rulers and could explain the correct step-by-step order of calibrating units.
Failing that, anyone who uses screen measuring software that they love will PLEASE jump in an and make a recommendation.
Thank you!! Jim in Maine, USA
