There are two kinds of measuring functions.
Distance: User-defined value
Distance between a straight line and a point: Perpendicular measurement from a selected component e.g. the side of a wall.
During input the current values, such as angle and distance, are continuously updated on the measurement line. A left mouse click terminates the measurement process and the result is shown in the plan, until another measurement is carried out, or the measurement function is terminated with ‘Esc’ or over the context menu.
