    Snip & Sketch ruler does Nothing?


    Win 10 Version 1903

    1) What is the purpose of the Ruler (or protractor) in this new thing we are being forced to adopt?

    2) Here the ruler displays in a horizontal position, and while it can be moved up and down the screen, still in a horizontal position, it cannot be realigned to display vertically... Or even at any angle. Why?

    Spin it with your mouse wheel.

    Hmm- unexpected- click and drag works with left, right and even middle button - is there any differentiation?

    Thanks for the thought...
    Did a lot of online searching before coming here... Nothing worked.

    Using any mouse button including the central wheel button only moves it around the screen horizontally.

    Next?

    Please confirm you've tried scrolling- spinning the middle button - not clicking it- whilst the mouse pointer is over the ruler.

    I've tried everything you can do with the scroll wheel button, including scrolling-spinning the middle button.

    Even tried to push the wheel left and right.

    Does your scroll wheel work normally otherwise?

    The ruler rotates when I scroll with cursor as shown:

    Yes the scroll wheel work okay in graphics apps (Adjust tool sizes for example) It works okay in Filer windows.
    It works okay in Browsers scrolling the text up and down, etc...

    In the Snip & sketch when I use the scroll wheel on the ruler it just moved the ruler up or down the screen.

    Do you have a different mouse you can try? E.g. wired vs wireless?

    You can try re-registering S & Sketch:
