#4 – Get Dimensions with a Click of the Mouse!

In previous versions of EQ, there was no easy way to know the dimensions of a block, border block, cornerstone or sashing. To get these dimensions, you would have to select the block on the quilt, then go to Print > Block and view the dimensions from the print dialog. Now, on the Print & Export tab, you simply click on any block space, and the size pops up in a convenient little box. Click on a different space and the box updates with the new block’s dimensions.

The images below show this awesome new feature in action. The selected block is highlighted in green.
