Not sure why all your final cuts and prints do not measure up to the requirements?
Using the Ruler Tool to ensure that all your measurements are correct will save you a lot of re-cutting to refine the size and design.

Hey, guys. In today's video, the final cut will be looking at the measuring tool. Let's just have a quick intro here. Mm. Well, today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. Let's see that you guys will notice We've got a variety of different software we do cover, and we upload videos daily. So by their very new content, Well, we're back in the programme here. Now, before we get to the measuring tool. Just, uh, we've covered this in another tutorial, but we'll just quickly go through it again. So just to get the unit set to your will, navigate to the documents property, which will be this little paper on the right. Then we'll go down to units. And then from here, you can choose inches, millimetres or centimetres. He's going to keep it on inches for now. Mm. And you can also do the grid line. This is relevant to the inches or whichever selected on top there. And this is your bread line. You've got your main lines, the main blocks, which will be the top one. And by how many are they subdivided? This was subdivided by six inches so that every six inches um, there's a main line and in between. So, you know, one of these are six inches, so it's good to know scale beforehand. You can kind of see it there. Okay, Otherwise, then we go to our left to panel here and then normally the second icon to the bottom as your ruler. So you'll click that and then on top of the illness, we've got four different options. So we've got X and y. This will be the starting point of your X and y. So wherever you click on the mat and you start your ruler, this will be that location. Then we've got H. And, uh, wh This is for within height or for horizontal and vertical, and the distances will be an overall distance from point A to B, and then we put the angle in degrees. So now let's say we want to measure this, uh, line here. Now, once you click with your left mouse button and you keep it in, and if you move here, you guys can't see it nice on the video, but it's a little blue line. That appears so then let's say we move it to there and then if you want to make an accurate one, as you can see under the W H, because you can see the horizontal is not 100% levelled, so it's not like water level. So to do that, you can keep shifting and constraints it. So I was constrained by the 45 degree or now just on a horizontal or the vertical. So this horizontal again and you leave your left click and then we will throw in all your measurements here. So now, like I mentioned now we know. Okay, this one started 3.23 point 35, 3.32 from the X and 5.22 inches from the height. As you can see here three point but to to and then so you can kind of see where your starting point was. Next. We've got the with which will be 2.66 and then, as you can see, the distance also 2.66. But if we had to have any high 10 year, the overall distance will not be the same as the work, so you can individually calculate your within your height and then the overall distance from Point A to B. So let's say we've clicked. We've measured from this bottom corner to the top one. Now, like I mentioned, you can see that over a distance not the same so worth or the height. So just keep that in mind. You can see the individual distance and also the overall or the 0.8 tube and then here with the angle and you can see it's minus 21. So now to fix this or two rather calculate this better. So from bottom up measuring, you'll see it in the minuses top down. It's the normal amount. So if we now go from the top corner is the one where you can do it and you measure to the bottom corner. Now we can see it's 58 points, Um, 81 inches degree. Sorry. So now to change. Let's say you you did measure from the bottom up and you want to calculate this because it works in 100 and 80 degrees. We can just, um, go to our calculator. You got 100 and 80 U minus 21.22, and then it's 58.78 degrees. So if you have to calculate it, that's so easy to do it. Otherwise, Oh, that's the way you do it. Otherwise, you can just do it from top down, and then it will not be an A minus. You'll see from left to right. It is zero angle. Then, as we go, clockwise will be 45 1985 1 83. Otherwise, yeah, that's the basics of the measuring tool if we just get you to our website quick. So if you guys navigate to softwaretraining.co.za Mozilo's era, you can find this video and more videos like it. Like I did mention, we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and we have this nice little search options so you can isolate your search. Then we also have if you don't find what you're looking for, requests a training video and then we'll make that for you. Otherwise, thanks guys, for watching and cheers
