The Distance tool is used to measure linear distances on your drawing. This tool will show the distance between two points entered by the pointer device, the horizontal and vertical offsets between the points, and the counter-clockwise angle between the horizontal axis and the line between the points.

Once the points have been entered, circular handles are shown at the endpoints of the line. These handles can be dragged as needed to measure other distances.

This tool has no App Bar options.
