    Distance between two objects

    Yuri Câmara Level 1

      Hi folks,


      Who knows how I can discover the distance between two selected objects without using neither guides nor grids?

          How do imagine this would working without using guides or grids? The way I normally do it is:


          1. Drag out a guide to point A

          2. Drag out a guide to point B

          3. Hold shift and put the mouse cursoe between the two -- it shows you the distance


          You could also use the measuring tool (click and hold the rectangle tool in the tool pallette.)


          Or even just draw a rectangle and look at the width in the property panel. That's a fast and easy method I use sometimes.
