Draw measuring lines over the floor plan to view distances between two or more points.
The blue lines and measurements created with this tool are temporary overlays used to confirm distances between points. As such, they are not included in printed reports. Multiple measurement overlays can be drawn, but they will disappear as soon as another tool is selected or the Escape key is pressed. Since measurements are drawn as a rectangle, a single use of this tool can display distances among multiple points.
- Left-click the Measure tool from the Home tab of the ribbon bar.
- Left-click on the drawing to set a start point for the measurement.
- Left-click a second time to set an end point.
- Choose another tool or press the Escape key to remove measurement overlays.
Tip: To create permanent measuring lines that snap to room sides and are included in printed plans, use the Measuring Line tool.
