One ruler to ruler them all – Goldie gives you Golden Ratio without the math.

Golden rule of thirds, regular and diagonal rule of thirds, baroque proportions… A host of Goldie rulers that overlay on your Mac screen.

Goldie App adapts to background color while applying an overlay ruler on your screen. Ruler-referencing made simple!

Switch between Goldie rulers with your preferred shortcut. Flip or lock in place with the click of a button!

Goldie gives exact numbers, always. Measure from any ratio point – on or off screen – with design projects of all types.

Goldie lives in the top menu bar for easy opening and overlay, or drag and drop SVG guides in any program.
Dark mode is available, too!

Goldie uses commands that are native to macOS, but you can personalize to create custom shortcuts for showing rulers, or toggling between ruler themes!

Achieve natural and elegant compositions infused with mathematical beauty!

Stay golden!

Great tool

This is exactly the kind of tool I had dreamed in my head one day that I wondered if I could find on the app store. Love both modes, it rocks and its really refreshing to see devs with a sense of humor.

The secondary monitor thing is an issue: If I launch an overlay from monitor #2 I cannot do anything with it to manipulate it. I must go back to monitor #1 and relaunch. I agree with an earlier post recommending you fix pleez. I gave you one more star than he did in good faith :)

Developer Response ,

Hello Goldie! Thank you so much for your appreciation!
I'm happy to let you know that the secondary monitor bug was fixed in version 1.2.

Please follow these steps to enable it and enjoy goldie on both of your screens! (As well as all the additional rulers we added!)

Stay Goldie!

A great little tool for a guy with a bad eye for layouts!

Works great, actively developed and very handy. It also make you think properly when doing a layout. It is nice to have tools like this when you are a jack of all trades business owner.
