Revu can show multiple measurement values within one measurement markup, which eliminates redundancy when performing takeoffs. Instead of taking separate area and perimeter measurements, you can take an area measurement that displays a perimeter measurement as well.
- As with any measurement, be sure to calibrate the document first.
The measurement value is on top of the text in the drawing. This can be moved by holding down the Shift key and clicking and dragging the label to a more visible location.
- Go to Tools > Measure > Area (Shift-Option-A).
- Click and drag on the document to create your measurement.
If a scale has not been set on your document, a window appears allowing you to set your scale.
- With your measurement selected, in the Properties toolbar, click the Show Caption dropdown. Fill the checkboxes of the measurement values that you want to display.
