CrossHair Generator

Have you ever had the need to line up data or images and needed some sort of ruler or line alignment tool?  Here’s a free tool for aligning lines in images, charts, and more.  CrossHair generator application is a great classic tool by Mike Lin that still works on modern OS’s, for the most part, and displays two full-screen lines intersecting your mouse cursor when you press a hot key.

As you move the mouse cursor, the lines follow over any program or window. The program is tiny, and runs completely transparently until you call up the crosshairs. It’s useful for eyeballing any kind of chart or tabular data on screen, and for aligning objects in graphics or design applications.
