The Caliper tool can be used to measure and check the height or width of objects in the Viewer. For example, the tool can be used to check the text height in the artwork.
Measuring widths and heights with the Caliper tool can be done in two ways: You can either measure the distance freely, or you can specify (or select) a fixed Gap to check against. A popover displays the current Gap size and the X / Y coordinate of the end line. The information is updated when you move the lines of the Caliper tool. Any Gap you measure can also be saved as a preset. This way, you can create your own favorites.
For more information, read the Caliper section in the WebCenter User Documentation.
The following steps describe how to use the Caliper tool:
Click the Caliper tool to activate it. A sub menu appears.
Make sure that the Style is set to Free to freely measure the distance. Hold down the left or right mouse button to draw the start line and drag to the end line. Release the mouse when the desired width or height is achieved. To adjust the height / width, simply drag the lines. You may also move the gap from one location to another. The Caliper tool will switch to horizontal or vertical orientation corresponding to the direction of your mouse movement. To save the current Gap size and the orientation as a preset, simply click the Save button.
Set Style to Fixed to specify a Gap size in advance. You can also specify a direction to measure either width or height. Now hold down the left or right mouse button to draw the start line and the end line will be drawn according to the Gap size. To save the current Gap size and orientation as a preset, simply click the Save button.
To use a preset, set Style to your desired preset (the ones you have saved before are added to the Style drop-down list). To delete a preset from the list, click the Delete button.
