    Hi,

    I absolutely love the internal preview, but would like to see two new features:

    The first one, a simple ruler. It would be cool if it could measure stuff, but I would be happy enough with a ruler that can be drawn vertically or horizontally and then perhaps moved on the screen. This would be helpful to see if elements are on the same height or have the same margin (for example listing frames and text width).
    I know there are tools for that, I just thought it might be cool if it was included (one tool less I have to take care of).

    The second feature might be available already. Is there an option to disable "go to line" for the internal preview?
    I often change setting at the beginning of the file (listing options) and when I want to review the changes and press F1 it goes to the beginning of the PDF file and I have to scroll to the first listing to see what changed.

    Edit: Sorry, I'm dumb, rebuilding (F6) works.

    Thanks so much for your efforts!

    Simon

    We have thought about adding measuring/drawing/annotating tools before,
    but there was never time...

    You can make a feature request for that in the tracker, so it does not
    become forgotten
