Who did it?

I spent quite a while looking for a horizontal ruler and eventually found a plugin created by someone in Japan.  It was functional but I couldn’t read the settings as they were written in Japanese.

After posting the link here with instructions on how to download and install it, Jeffery Grossman took the time to update and translate the code for it. I now link to his repo to download the updated plugin. 

Thank you to those two people.
