Bring back Inspector mode's ruler to design mode

Since developer mode has been introduced, I find it very annoying to not be able to move elements while using the rulers found in the Inspector mode. I can’t measure and move elements as I used to.

I understand the reason why on developer mode you can’t move items, but the ruler was very useful. Perhaps it could be reintegrated when you activate the rulers with Shift + R?


Yeah, its been annoying so far to have to click into dev mode and wait a moment for the Figma UI to change over to get the ruler, then for it to change back when done. Adds a good bit of extra time to get simple measurements.

Maybe let them keep their new dev mode, but give us back an easy one click ruler to use. Not being able to move components while using the ruler has significantly slowed my workflow.
