Measure Tool

The Measure tool creates measurements in any of several measurement modes. Measurements can persist as markups, allowing for processing and summarization through the Markups list, which is useful for estimation and takeoffs, or be temporary, which is useful for quickly measuring something without creating a visual record on the PDF.

When the Measure Tool is activated, the last measurement mode used is automatically selected. This makes it easier to employ your most commonly used measurement mode.

If you have not yet set the page scale, you will be prompted to do so when you place the first measurement.

For details on each measurement mode, see their individual sections (listed in Related topics below).
