Line lengths without labels? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Is there an easy way to see the length of a line without adding a label with a length variable to it (a rather cumbersome procedure)? I've been rotating the line to the horizontal, looking at its length in the inspector, and undoing. Seems silly.

I tried both [a] and [b]. Personally, I found [b] far more cumbersome.

Why don't you try this idea:
http://forums.omnigroup.com/showthre...ht=line+length
place a generic line with a length variable in the label in your stencil
use the line from the stencil, and draw it where you want it
the label will show the exact length
select and delete the label

Cheers
