Overview

A reading aid for pages with wiiiiiiide paragraphs.

Based on this script: https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/372448-reading-ruler/code This reading ruler will aid you on reading texts on the internet It will place a semi-transparent line on your screen, just hit the combination ctrl + r on windows and mac (not the command button but the control button) to activate the ruler, hit the same configuration to remove the ruler This idea come from the reddit user /u/VectorLightning And the thread can be found here: https://www.reddit.com/r/SomebodyMakeThis/comments/9huwbw/smt_a_firefox_addon_that_adds_a_horizontal/ I hope you find this extension useful Releases Notes: V4.0 Redo of the extension, all the features introduced on V3.1 were causing a lot of bug, surprisingly there are still people using and finding this extension, so I decided to simplify it and make it work on all websites. I hope this update fixes all major issues reported on the feedback page. Here a list of changes: - You are not able to set a shortcut anymore, for now these are set by default. - Windows: ALT + SHIFT + 3 - Mac: Command + SHIFT + U - Color and opacity are still options that you can change - Add save button to apply changes done to the ruler color and opacity - Fix issue with ruler not working on multiple websites - Simplified core mechanism to allow extension to always work V3.1 Lots of improvements, extension should now always work and should not be invisible - fix problem where ruler would not show on screen (for real this time!) - new popup layout with 2 new options - you now can choose a color for your ruler - you can now set how visible you want your ruler to be - update core code - remove itself when its orphaned - create functions to prevent references on event handlers - remove unnecessary calls to background script - overall improve code to work better v3.0.1 - Avoid exceptions when extension is updated - Increase z index of ruler to try to push to the foreground v3.0 - Code rewrite to make extension function properly - Update manifest to V3 - Fix extension so it should only show the ruler when active - Drop support for Alt modifier key, you can now only combine CTRL, SHIFT and a keyboard key - Drop badge text since it was not working anymore v 2.2 - Fix issue with ruler not showing when pressing the toggle combination v 2.1 - Add badge to extension icon to let you know the tool is active v 2.0 - Add options page - Allow user to choose from using CTRL, ALT and SHIFT plus a key - Update and rewrite the entire code to be more OOP

Best and simplest Reading Ruler I've found. Simple Reading Ruler. Easy to use. Very versatile. Love that it changes size according to text. You can use Hex, RGB, HSL, or even a ink dropper for color picking. It does have a problem with remembering the color I want the ruler to have, but I just set it again occasionally. Sometimes I have trouble using it on certain websites, but over all it is very worthwhile.
