10.4: View selection dimensions in Preview
Authored by: wuf810 on Jan 08, '07 09:04:18AM

yes just the option key. if you forget to hold the key down before dragging, just let go and hold and drag an existing rectangle and the coordinates return. Handy tool to know about.

OH, that's a nice addition, too. Good to know for those times when the box looks perfect but I forgot to hold Option to get the dimensions.

Oh, darn. When I test this on a JPG, I find that just dragging the box around, and holding Option, doesn't add the dimensions display. Only *resizing* the box seems to do let me add the Option key. All this is assuming, of course, that I dragged a selection box before thinking about holding down Option.
