Found a little trick by accident tonight, i don't even know if it's an intended program feature but, if you zoom all the way into the painting to do some detailed work, and select stencils and bring out a ruler, you get tiny little rulers to work with lol, i mean tiny hehehe, when you zoom back out, they stay tiny, they look more like a tape measure than a ruler, which could be handy if you saving screen real estate or don't want a ruler that's bulky :)

The stencil/ruler sizes stay the same *relative to your screen view*? is that what you mean? It's quite handy ^_^ If I want a big one, I zoom right out.

The rulers (and stencils) can be scaled up or down for the same results by holding the "ALT" key and left clicking (hold) and dragging the mouse/pen left or right. Alternatively, one can also click on the Magnifying glass (scale tool) on the bottom of the screen and then left click (hold) on the ruler and drag left or right.

What happened to me was i zoomed right in as far as AR would let m to work on some details, and i needed a bunch of rulers to make life easier, when i zoomed out to see what it looked like i noticed the rulers stayed the same size, as when i had brought them when i was zoomed in, so they were miniatures.
