Distance-Tool

The Distance tool measures the distance between two points on the board. For example, you might want to check that the distance between two pads is as specified in a component footprint drawing.

alt To measure the distance between two points:
  1. Click on the start point.
  2. Move to the end point.
  3. Read the distance from the Length field of the Properly bar.

It's recommended to turn the snap-to-line mode on for precise measurements.
