I'd love to see an option in preferences under Units and Rulers to set the Ruler Origin (0,0) to be in a different location than the top left corner of the artboard, either on a document by document basis, or as a default - maybe with a toggle. A 3x3 grid of radio button selections such as top left, middle left, bottom left; top center, middle center, bottom center; top right, middle right, bottom right would be ideal, but a drop down list would work also. This would save having to zoom waaaaayyy in to the appropriate location and dragging the corner box of the ruler to (hopefully) line up with the exact pixel you're aiming for on each new artboard/file.

If there's already a simple way to do this that I'm unaware of, I'd love to know what it is!

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback, kstohlmeyer! I knew about dragging the upper left corner, but didn't know about the Shift key modifier.  Helpful! Also, I submitted this as an "Idea" on the feedback forum here:Set Ruler Origin Location in Preferences, New Document Dialog or Menu

Its super easy to reorientate the ruler:

Grab the upper left corner where the two rulers meet and drag a new orientation point.

If you hold the shift key while you move it will lock to ruler positions.
