Calibrate a Drawing

The first time you add measurements to a drawing, you will need to calibrate the drawing using the Calibrate markup tool.

  1. Click Distance on the markup toolbar to reveal the measurement markup options.


     
  2. Click Calibrate.
  3. Find a location on the drawing that you know the measurement of (i.e. the length of a wall).
  4. Click and drag the calibration from one end of the length to the other.
  5. Enter the length in feet and inches, or meters.
    Note: Only whole numbers can be entered in these fields.
  6. Click Done.
    Note: If you ever delete this calibration, all measurement markups will remain. However, they will be re-calculated when you enter a new calibration.
  7. Optional: If you want to recalibrate the drawing:
    • Click the original calibration markup and click Recalibrate. Follow steps 5 and 6 above.
