Show measurements in VCarve Desktop 2d drawing

When using the ruler, how do we display and keep the measurements on the drawing?

Use the "Dimension" tool instead.

I use the dimension tool a lot. One handy tip, that I am sure came from some wise user on this forum in the past, put your measurements on a "measurements layer". Then you can turn the layer on and off when working on other things.
