This issue occurs when the Snap Orthogonal option is enabled in the Measurements panel.


Follow the steps below to disable Snap Orthogonal.

  1. To open the Measurements panel, select Window > Panels > Measurements.
  2. At the top of the panel, select the Measurements dropdown.

    Disable Snap Orthogonal in Measurements panel

  3. Toggle Snap Orthogonal to disable it.
    If you’re using Revu 2018, the Snap Orthogonal setting is available at the bottom of the Measurements panel under Options.

If the issue persists, double-check your snap settings in Revu > Preferences > General > Grid & Snap.
