Hello,
something I've been missing for a while and have not seen in any program is a decent ruler with subdivisions for measuring. This is something I have frequently wanted when making perspective drawings for backgrounds.
I was thinking of displaying a line with subdivisions that can be set by the user. The ruler would then display these as equally proportionite units. The example image has the ruler in various lengths set to display 5 equal units
Furthermore the ruler has three handles to allow rotation at either end and the middle.

I recommend using Lazy Nezumi Pro for ruler in the meantime. You can adjust the scale of it. It can rotate too.

It can also do ellipses you suggested on your other thread.

Can't you do a set of custom brushs? And then use the shortcuts to transform brushs to fit it in the right place? :)
