Length of Vectors

Postby Seachaser » Wed Jun 15, 2016 9:38 am

Greetings all,
Doing some contour inlays and was wondering if there is a method for calculating the length of a vector in Aspire. These are various shaped vectors and currently I am cutting a shallow "V" groove, insetting a piece of string, and then measuring the string. Thought there might be an easier and quicker way of doing this.

Thanks,
Jim

Use the measure tool. Last icon on the first row of Edit Objects. Set it to span/contour properties and click on the vector.
