The “Distance” control , is located in the “inquiry” toolbar:
and serves to measure the distance between two points.
We can use it when we want to know a distance without having to put a dimension.
On the command, you have to click (with the snap on), up two points between which we want to measure the distance.
The command is now concluded and in the command line is the measured distance, alongside the written: Distance = xxx.xxxx
We must be careful because in addition to the linear distance there are also returned other values, Delta X, Delta Y, and so on.
What interests us is the value in the “Distance”.
It may not be visible as it returns different values are occupied two or three lines of the command line, so since the distance is first value written, it happens that remains outside the command line.
In this case, you just click the scroll arrows, at right to command line, to scroll the text until you see the value “Distance”.
We can also press the “F2” key on keyboard, to open the text window of AutoCAD, this window shows us in full all that is written on the command line, then read the bottom of the screen, the value “Distance”.
