Ruler - alignment tool

We are only 6 months into our Smartsheet journey and thus often tinkering and creating new reports, it would be really handy to have a ruler at the top in order to align fields/columns in reports. I have marked where a ruler could sit with highlighter yellow below. Does anyone else recognise the need or have an alternative solution?

Thanks.

    Hi Tim, 

    I can't see any attachment? What kind of fields is that you want to align?

  • Hi Andrée,

    Hopefully it's there now, it's when i'm creating a report for use on a Sight, trying to align columns in the limited space and sometimes I have to retro fit changes to a number of existing reports.

    thanks

    Tim.

    Now it's there. 

    One possible workaround is to take a screenshot and attach it on top maybe?

    Best,

    I think that's a good idea for an enhancement request.  But it must be something that the users can turn on/off.  Don't want it taking up space all the time when you really just need it during the sheet/report creation.

    This could especially be of help with the dashboards/sights.  I don't use them, but measuring your layout easily with rulers seems a good idea.
