How to use the reference ruler?

I am on a quest for a lost secret of ancient wisdom! (LOL) I asked in two grids already, InWorldz and OSGrid, but no-one knew. It's simply what the title says: how to use the reference ruler. To use the reference ruler a reference prim must be chosen with some key combination, but I can't remember what it is.

It's not present in . Someone in OSGrid claimed Cool Viewer chooses the reference prim when reference ruler is selected from the drop-down, (the one with 'world' and 'local' too,) but it's not doing that for me. (If it did, it wouldn't be good anyway.)

So, what's the key combination, please?

If you are speaking about the "Reference" ruler mode in the Edit floater combo, you must first select the reference object and use "Tools" -> "Use selection for grids" in the main menu.

Yes, that's it, thank you. The menu in turn informed me of the key combination: Shift-G. That explains why I couldn't remember it: I was expecting something with more keys, including Control.
