Using Rulers

For more precise measurements, you can enable rulers in the top-down view. These make it easier to move and size objects relative to a particular point on the landscape design, called the origin. As you move the cursor in the view, the rulers will show you the distance to the origin in each direction. When you move an object, the rulers will draw a shaded area that shows how far you have moved in each direction.

To turn rulers on or off: Click Settings > Rulers > Show Rulers. Or, press Ctrl+R.

To set the ruler origin:

1.   Click Settings > Rulers > Set Ruler Origin. Or, click the origin symbol in the top-left corner of the rulers (shown above) and select Set Ruler Origin from the drop-down menu.

2.   Move the crosshairs to the desired position and click to set the origin. Press Esc if you wish to cancel.

To reset the ruler origin to the top-left of the landscape: click Settings > Rulers > Reset Ruler Origin. Or, click the origin symbol in the top-left corner of the rulers (shown above) and select Reset Ruler Origin from the drop-down menu.
