    I used to use this all the time, glad to see it updated.2 features that would be handy…Show the mouse coordinate while you move the mouse around it, maybe both in pixel-perfect window coordinates and in screen coordinates.Ability to type in a size (or sizes) to add to the menu besides 800×600 and 1024×768.

    2 comments…1) I found it a (minor) annoyance to be required to uninstall the previous version. How about implementing the automatic update feature, which would be useful community code?2) This app should not bet granted unrestricted system access, since it is certainly not required.

    I love this app, use it all day.My only thing would be allowing it to go smaller (for measuring icons and stuff like that).

    Guys, it’s open-source. You can make these enhancements yourself.
