TIP 93: Drawing and Marking Up Shapes in Acrobat

Some people have a need to doodle on paper. What happens if you take their paper away? Well, just put a mouse in their hand and open a PDF document because you can draw all sorts of objects, including the aforementioned doodle, using the Drawing tools.

Another Dimension

You can use the Dimensioning tool , found on the Drawing Markups toolbar, to measure distances between two points or areas on a page. For example, use the tool to add a line between two points when you want to point out the width of a parking spot on a drawing or the distance between two graphic elements on a brochure layout. Click the tool in the Drawing Markups toolbar and drag from the line's starting point. When you release the mouse, the line finishes, and a text box displays for you to type a note. Each end of the line includes an anchor point and arrow.
