Another RapidWeaver blog

Yes, it's true: one more blog about our favorite web site building application for MacOS. But this one is a little different. It started back in 2011 as a blog focusing solely on free and low-cost stuff for (producing a web site with) RapidWeaver: themes, tools, tips, tricks, anything, as long as it was free – or low-cost.
    Over time, the Stacks plugin became more popular, and coding yourself was no longer an option for many people, so I started to develop my own stacks in the spirit of the blog: free (well, actually pay-what-you-want) and low-cost.
    This blog evolved with it, and is now primarily about those new stacks, although from time to time I will post about other free and low-cost stuff for RapidWeaver.

Do you know something free (or low-cost) & useful related to RapidWeaver not mentioned here? Have a suggestion for a subject to write about here or for a new stack?
Tips, questions and remarks are always welcomed.
Just and help expand this little blog!
no, not this way…

Keep it Aligned

Alignment of elements on a page is crucial for good visitor experience, this much is clear. But how can you be sure the elements on your page are indeed perfectly aligned? Of course, you can hold a piece of paper to your monitor to check, but that does not really feel …uh… professional.

Besides that,you will still not know how many pixels you are wrong. So, you end up switching to Preview mode, checking, back to Edit mode, change the padding and/or margin of a stack, back to Preview mode…

Here's a tip that won't cost you anything, but can save you loads of time and frustration. Get yourself a copy of Free Ruler, a nifty little application that no only gives you a set of rulers, but also measures in pixels, inches, picas, or centimeters. Once you start to use it, you'll wonder how you survived without it. Oh, and: we all switch between applications with + , don't we?
