Can I show the current window-size tooltip without resizing the window?

Tom Kiefer 4 years ago • updated 3 years ago 2
If I just want to check the current exact size of the window/viewport without changing it, can I?

I don't offhand see how to trigger the tooltip to display other than by changing the window's size...

Hi Tom,

I just pushed an update (should be available within the next hour) which adds a new keyboard command that toggles the bottom right hand tooltip without re-sizing the window; you just press whatever keyboard combination you chose and the tooltip appears (press again to hide). There are a few things to note though:
* As usual, the tooltip doesn't work on the Chrome Webstore pages, on any of Chrome's special pages (settings, downloads, extensions, etc) or on files loaded using the file:/// protocol or incognito pages if you haven't explicitly enabled the extension to work in those last two situations on chrome://extensions/?id=kkelicaakdanhinjdeammmilcgefonfh
* The tooltip needs to be enabled. If you disabled it on the extension's "Settings" page under "Tooltip visibility", it won't work
* There's no default keyboard shortcut so you need to add your own. If you don't know how to do that, here's an article explaining the steps.

Ionuț

Ionut,
That's exactly what I was looking for, and -- I've already installed the update and set up the shortcut -- it works perfectly.  Thanks!
