Tape measuring distance between 2D lines in orthogonal view

Recommended Posts

Previously (in v2010), I was able to measure the distance between two 2D lines drawn in a side view of a model. Side view is either Front, Back, Left, Right. Orthogonal view also includes Top and Bottom but rare in architecture.

Now (in v2014), I have to first be sure that the 2D lines are converted to "screen layer" plane mode in the Object Info palette. But still, I cannot hold constraint to measure between two lines. What am I missing?

3D precision is impossible!

How can I measure the distance otherwise?
