Measuring Objects

Acrobat 7 Professional includes several tools you can use to measure elements on a page, such as the distance between two columns of text, or the space between two objects in a PDF drawing. If you are working with a scaled drawing, as Ty is in his project, you’ll even be able to assign a scale. (You can choose from a number of values, such as pixels, inches, or even miles!) If you add annotations to the measurements, the values are converted to comments in the PDF file. For more information on working with comments in general, see Chapters 13 and 14.

Download taylor_project.pdf if you’d like to practice adding measurements to the drawing. Ty is adding several measurements to the drawing, and if you prefer to see the drawing complete with his measurements, download taylor_project_M.pdf
