thanks for setting me straight, William.  Not coming from NeXT, the 
solution I usually see first is to add to an individual application. 
It never even occurred to me that this could be solved with a ruler 

Do you recall the names of any of these ruler programs? a URL or two? 
I'd like to see what NeXT has had.
