Measuring screen elements in pixels

Bonus tip: hold down the spacebar after you start dragging, and you can move your entire selection around without starting over. Makes it easy to get the positioning exactly right.

I formed this habit in Illustrator, and at some point I must have tried it as an automatic reflex when taking a screenshot. Was surprised and delighted that it worked. I believe this feature was added in Snow Leopard.

Hey that's really cool. That seems tip-worthy to me in and of itself.

I agree. It's a great tip, and some great tips here in the comments.

I love the part about holding down the spacebar after you start dragging.

I just tried PixelStick and I'm grateful to have learned of it here, in these comments.

Thanks!
