Hello, I was really counting on being able to use the ruler for many intricate diagonal or non straight measurements done with grids and guides I found... The tool used to be available on previous versions of Elements. I automatically assumed it would be on the latest version I purchased (13). Is it there and I just have not found it? I really need this... Please help. Thank you.

Hi Genevieve,

Elements doesn't have a ruler tool but you can use the line tool and the Info panel get measurements: https://forums.adobe.com/message/3999...

Photoshop CC has sophisticated measurement tools for doing detailed image analysis: http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/usin...

You can even measure in perspective: http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/usin...
