  1. Snapping 
    • "On" by default - this will "snap" your measurement line to the nearest corner or edge.
    • "Off" will allow you to place the lines manually, anywhere. 
    • If snapping is turned "on", you can use the Shift key to automatically snap your line to the nearest axis.
    • Use the Alt key to remove all snapping
  2. Continuous Lines 
    • "On" by default - this will allow you to "continuously" measure an object with more than one edge or corner (like a table). We'll go over this more in the instructions below. 
  3. Units 
    • Choose between "Imperial" measurements (inches, feet) and "Metric" measurements (centimeters, meters).
