Using the Measurement Tool in Legacy Proof Viewer

    Summary: The Measurement Tool is useful for a variety of reasons such as checking page size, bleed size or perhaps the size of an object on a proof. 

    Available for all users in the review and approval process. 

    Where is this feature found? The measurement tool is accessed by clicking on the ruler at the bottom of the page within the Proof Viewer.

    How does it work?

    When you click on the ruler, it activates the measurement mode, and the measurement box will pop up (as shown in the screenshot above). You have the option to measure in pixels, 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.  

    Once you enter a measurement tool mode you will also see asset dimensions.

    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, allowing reviewers to measure the dimensions on both proof versions at the same time.
