In Photoshop CS6 Extended (Win7 64-bit) how can I use the Ruler Tool to not only record the angle and length of a given measurement, but also the beginning and ending coordinates?
And on a related note, is it possible to edit the fields beneath the Label column in the Record Measurement log; e.g., rename Ruler 1 to AB, Ruler 2 to CD, etc.
The intervening silence may have more to do with the facts that it is Saturday and that the pool of measurement users is relatively small ( an assumption ). However, what you are asking for would be a nice addition to the capabilities of the measurement features. Currently there is no way (that I know of) for Photoshop to do what you want and none of Photoshop's documentation suggests that there is.
Thanks for the reply
Actually I posted this question several days ago.. not that it matters terribly.
And yep, I've reached that conclusion too and appreciate your affirming remarks.
Thank you for the idea and for replying. On perhaps another day I'll attempt that as it sounds like a good approach. For the present; however, I've abandoned attempts to solve (the main problem) in Photoshop for another method in AutoCAD.
