Measure Distances

 To create a measurement

A label appears, showing the measurement between the selected points.

Measure Vertical or Horizontal Distances

The Horizontal/Vertical measurements tool allows you to create an horizontal or vertical measurement between two objects. 

Once the tool is active you will first pick a point, edge or face of an object. For the second point, you can only pick objects perpendicular to the first picked point. 

The measurement created will then represent the shortest distance between the point, edge or surface, and the picked object. Distance measurements are shown red, horizontal or vertical measurements are blue.
