Download Crosshairs »

Crosshairs is a screen ruler app for quickly getting the dimensions of anything on your screen. You can drag a transparent overlay overtop of any app and adjust the box as much as you need. No more taking a screenshot just to get the size of something.

* Activate/deactivate the app with global hotkey, which is customizable
* Switch between overlay colors
* Dynamically adjust the opacity of the overlay
* Switch between normal and inverted overlay mode
* Copy dimensions directly to your clipboard
* Can customize the format of the dimensions to suit your needs
* Take a screenshot of the area beneath the overlay
* Make pixel perfect adjustments with the keyboard

Keyboard Shortcuts:

Crosshairs is a menu bar app and has a very minimal interface. Most of the app’s features are controlled via keyboard shortcuts. Here’s a complete list:

* Esc or Command-H = Hide app
* Command-Shift-2 = Global hotkey to activate the app
* Arrow keys = Move the overlay by 1 pixel
* Shift + arrow keys = Move the overlay by 10 pixels
* i = Toggle between normal and inverted overlay mode
* Tab = Toggle between the primary/alternate overlay color
* Command + up/down arrow = Increase or decrease the opacity
* Command-C = Copy current dimensions to clipboard
* Delete = Clear the current overlay
* Command-, = Open preferences
* Space = Take screenshot
