Hi, It would be great to be able to move the ruler origin X and Y position (Like the rulers in Photoshop and Illustrator). Currently it's fixed in the upper left corner.  When I'm laying out surround elements with set spacing requirements I have to place a ruler, read the number, do the math and place the next ruler at the position to place the element.   

Thanks

Hi Jon Hamalainen‌  Can you provide some clarification on this request?  I think that a screenshot or two illustrating what you're trying to accomplish could be helpful.

When you say that you are placing rulers, do you mean placing guides?

For example, these are the rulers:

while these are the guides:

Depending on what you're trying to do, have you tried using the Add Guides dialog?
