Measure tool is the first tool you will experience when you open a design in Avocode. It allows you to know:
- sizes of selected layers
- distances between individual layers
- distances between a selection of multiple layers and another layer
- the position of the layer on the X and Y axes
TIP: Just hold Alt / Option key, to select the Measure Tool. You can also use a shortcut “R”.
How to use Measure tool?
Click on any given layer (or hold the SHIFT key and select multiple layers) and hover your mouse over any other layer and you will see both the size and the distances.
You can also measure in percentage values. To enable this feature, navigate to App preferences->General->Show relative units when using Measure tool.
Copy measurements and size values
In the top right corner in the Design View you can see a Size (width & height) and Position (X & Y axes) of the selected layer. Just click on any particular value and it will be copied to your clipboard.
