The Measure tool is similar to the Slope tool except it measures the distance between any two points on the Profile worksheet Data Graph. This tool adds a line labeled with the distance values to the graph, and notes the change in X and change in Y (Delta X and Delta Y) instead of the slope.

Important Information

This is available when in Engineer Mode.


To find the distance between two points:

1)On the Tools menu, click Measure.
2)Position the mouse pointer at a point on the curve.
3)Press and hold the left mouse button.
4)Drag the pointer to the end of the desired point on the curve.
5)Release the left mouse button when the pointer is at the desired location and a slope line labeled with the change in X and Y appears on the Data Graph.



To obtain more accurate distances:

1)Magnify a portion of the Data Graph using the Magnify tool and repeat this procedure.


To remove the annotated distance:

1)Using the mouse pointer, select the object on the Data Graph by clicking it once. The object trackers will then become bold indicating that it has been selected.
2)Press the [Delete] key on the keyboard to remove the object.



This command can be accessed on the Toolbar when the Profile Tab is active.
