What is Yardstick Plus?

Yardstick is a small Utility, which helps you to measure anything, you can display on your screen. You draw a line or a polygon across the document to measure and Yardstick tells you the overall leng
th and the area enclosed by the polygon.

Starting Yardstick will create an transparent layer over your entire screen, where you can draw lines or polygons. A small panel shows you the length of the aggregated polygon segments, the area enclosed by the polygon and the angle of the last line segment.

Yardstick Plus got some Enhancements over Yardstick:

  1. The Zoom Area supports exact positioning of the polygon segments

  2. The Units Editor allows the User to define his own Units

  3. Pressing the cmd key (⌘) will show for each polygon segment length and angle on the screen

  4. It is possible to define a coordinate system (even offset and rotated) to evaluate coordinates for all polygon points, pressing the ctrl key will show them onscreen

  5. The opacy of the measuring layer can be adjusted for better readability
