Scale to work with pixels

Post by death.crafter »

Not exactly an tip or trick but it was useful to me so I thought I would share it.

When working on skins with pixels as measurement it is hard to guess the perfect position for elements. So I just made a scale to work with pixels. You can change the variables inside the skin to use it where you want.

I like your use of lua to create multiple shapes for markers, nice work! :thumbup:

You could also use Alignment Grids for positioning elements by pixels, inches, or millimeters in adjustable rectangular grids, and by pixels in circular or perspective. :Whistle
