Tape Measure tool measurements while in Sheet Layer

Recommended Posts

Hello -

 

Is there a way to measure the distance between, for example,  two viewports that are at the same scale without the measurement appearing at the scale of the viewports?  That is, I'd like to know what the distance between the viewports on the sheet layer (1:1 scale).  Is there a preference / toggle for this?

 

Thanks -

 

Doug

Absolute fastest way? Line Tool. Draw a segment and then the floating data bar will show the Length.

Totally concur.  If its only a straight line form A to B use a line.  Mind you if you click twice you now have to erase the line.  O.o  Click once only to set the line at the beginning.  (for the newbies)

This is one of those tools that is used for other purposes other than what it was designed for.
