Description lxlyons 2012-10-16 16:44:58 UTC
In the recent usability test, it was very apparent that users needed some clear visual support for discerning the box model.  In fact, without it, they drew incorrect conclusions about the CSS.

This ER tracks adding this very valuable feature.
Comment 1 lxlyons 2012-10-16 16:46:31 UTC
In addition to the box model, users requested additional information like Chrome provides

Liza, do you plan to provide some UI specification/details for this enhancement or should we just modify the visualization of the selection (in the browser) to resemble what Google Chrome is doing in this area?
Comment 3 Jan Stola 2013-02-15 11:19:07 UTC
Some basic visualization of the box model and the size of the element (on mouse hover) has been implemented. Feel free to fill additional bugs/enhancements related to this area.
