Hello

How to make proper measurements with "Analyse -> Simple Measurement" ?

  • When I try to create a straight "drafting"-style measurement like in picture "BLUE".
  • It will always create misaligned measurement like in picture "RED".

Also you can use, File > Preferences > User Intrface (Ctrl + 2). Select 'Options' and click on arrow icon of 'Reset Dialog Memory'. It will reset the all command window to its default dialog options.
