How does it work?

When you click on the ruler it turns on measurement mode and the measurement box will pop up (as shown in the screenshot above). You have the option to measure in inches or millimeters. You may also choose the measurement transparency color. 

Simply drag from point to point, highlighting the selected area and the measurements will be calculated.  

Additional information:

  • To exit the measuring tool simply click on “pan mode”, which is the hand button.
  • The measurement tool is also available when you are comparing different versions. This allows the reviewers to measure the dimensions on both proof versions at the same time.
