Can you do without paper sheets? I can’t.
Generally I have a rough idea of ISO/DIN A paper sizes, but when it comes to exact dimensions or sheet sizes of more
exotic standards even I need a little help. Although books and encyclopedias are all very well for some things, the vast world wide web for others, I needed a more direct and intuitive way to quickly find those precious bits of information. What is better for this purpose than a widget right on your Mac’s dashboard?
I started this project in 2011 and have since improved the interface and added items.
What’s in the box?
