It was about five years ago that I used TurboCAD on Windows.  One feature that I really liked was the ability to have rulers on the top and side of the drawing I am working on.  I was very disappointed to discover this feature wasn't carried over to the Mac version.

Yes, please make Rulers for the MAC version.  After using PC-TC18 (and earlier) for many years, I like rulers in my 2D drawing windows.  Makes it SOOOOOO much easier to place and dimension in real time.

I see that this feature has been requested many, many times but is still not in MAC V7Pro ... that I can find anyway.

It's within the deep selection toolset- there are 3 there- ruler is one of them

That is not a permanent ruler on screen. it is a measuring tools.
That is not what I like .
and I can not find it also in TC-pro-V8

I like to have at Top and at left a permanent Rule. ( Who change also of value when zooming in) and the ruler start with 0,0 at set origin. Just like other Cad program's...

As you get older, everything become worse, except for the oblivion, which is getting better and better ...

Just a comment o this topic,
I use Adobe Creative Suite at work and all, or just about all the programs have rulers that you can drag guide lines out of.
I totally agree its a very handy feature.

When I work in TC, I use construction lines and place them at key points.

Great suggestion,
