Maybe this is common practice, but to keep my plastic rulers and templates from slipping around on fabric while I cut, I place small strips of that spongy shelf lining under them. The lining seems to cling to the underside of the template, but is not permanent. You can place it so it doesn't obscure critical markings.

I use a more pemanent solution of adhering narrow strips of sandpaper with double sided tape to the underside of my 48" metal straight edge.

Very good iead. I had some sticky drops to glue on my quilting ruler but removed them as they didn't provide complete surface contact between the cloth and the ruler over the full length. And the glue was a real pain to remove. I definitely prefer a method that doesn't require gumming up or obscuring the ruler as different projects have different requirements. Thanks.

You can also paint squiggles of puff paint on the underside of any ruler to keep it from slipping.

There are also metal rulers with a cork backing that you can buy.
