The measure tool calculates the distance between any two points in the work area. When you measure from one point to another, a nonprinting line is drawn and the options bar and Info palette show the following information:
• The horizontal (W) and vertical (H) distances traveled from the x- and y-axes.
• The angle measured relative to the axis (A).
• The total distance traveled (D1).
• When using a protractor, you can view two distances traveled (D1 and D2).
All measurements except the angle are calculated in the unit of measure currently set in the Units & Rulers preference dialog box. For information on setting the unit of measure, see "Using rulers" on page 43.
