Information from Bernina Ambassador:
The Adjustable Ruler foot #72 is compatible with our current line of machines; the 3 Series, 4 and 5 Series, and 7 and 8 Series. It is not compatible with previous generations of machines with four digits in the model number or earlier. This foot is separate from the BERNINA Stitch Regulator, and is not compatible with BSR. Reports say the foot hops, you would need to check as this would mean using longarm rulers. Hopefully you can adjust the foot and stop the hopping for ruler work.
an alternative use the Westalee foot
Simple buy our amazing deal on the #77 Adapter and the Westalee foot works great. Bernina Sewing Machines
We recommend using the #77 Shank Adaptor (the #75 Shank Adapter is too close to the needle plate, making it difficult to move templates as the shank adaptor presses on the templates).
When using the 7 and 8 series machines use Westalee Medium Shank Ruler Foot

TIPS FOR USE:
Never try ruler work without a ruler foot Wear gloves! Apply small pieces of Stable Tape on your ruler Use Sew Slip Slider on your sewing machine base to allow fabric to glide.
Use new needles for best results. New Chrome Needles for Quilting are exceptional! SUPERIOR Titanium-coated Topstitch Needles are also good Weightless Quilter is excellent to hold your fabric stop the drag allow you to concentrate on your ruler work.
Update - Leonie West does not support the Clarity Ruler Foot –
Explanation the foot flexes and moves when rulers pushed against it which will create design imperfections-
we are not stocking this foot, we want to give you what is tried and tested and proved to work for beginners to advanced.
ONE template is included with the Ruler Foot to introduce you to the technique, as shown!
Longarm on Frame Machines
Ideally the Ruler Foot should measure 1/2” across the collar with the needle stitching at 1/4” from the ruler or template edge. This will make it easy to calculate spacings across a block or quilt.
AT A SIT-DOWN MODEL
• Place enough pressure on the ruler to move the fabric and ruler at the same time.
• There is a fine balance between the proper pressure and too much pressure.
Nolting, A1, Handy Quilter, Innova and Prodigy machines all have a true ½” round Ruler Foot. Gammil and APQS have a 9/16” Ruler Foot, which will stitch out at 9/32” from the ruler or template edge.
We now have a 1/2" hopping foot made for Gammill Machines.
Please advise if your longarm is 1/2" or 9/16" so we can supply the correct rulers
