Ruler (Measurement) tool in Affinity Photo !

Recommended Posts

I have a question, is there also something like a measurement tool in Affinity Photo & Designer, like the Ruler tool in PS.???

If not can it be implemented in the next update of the program. TIA

You can draw out a rectangle--before the mouse is released, the dimensions are shown near the cursor. It probably would be nice to have an official tool, though. I looked for one but didn't find it (in AP).

 

Workspace rulers are already available and can be turned on in the View menu.

The purpose of my question about a "Ruler Tool" is so that I can re-scale objects in the program by measuring the object and than re-scale it to the dimensions and scale I like. It also would be handy to make a menu in "Document">"Resize Document">also in % !! I work a lot with drawings and graphics, and instead of using the oversized and overweighted PS I would like to do this in Affinity Photo, which has a much smaller footprint !!

Input of xxx% is already possible and very handy. Why a new sub menu?

John--I am saying you can measure by drawing a rectangle across the dimensions of the object you are measuring. Just drag but don't release--you will see the measurements at the cursor.
