Using the Measurement System Tool

This topic references tools and features that are legacy. If you want to use legacy tools in Lumberyard Editor, disable the CryEntity Removal gem using the Project Configurator or the command line. To learn about the latest features, see the Amazon Lumberyard User Guide.

The Measurement System Tool allows to measure the length of segmented objects like roads, rivers, and paths. Measuring of segments is done by following the shape of each segment. The measured path is shown in yellow color.

To read the length of some parts of a segmented object, a start point and an end point must be selected.

To measure a segmented object

  1. Click to select the object in the viewport.

  2. Click the Edit button. The object should turn yellow and be sunken.

  3. Click Tools, Other, Measurement System Tool.

  4. Click on the start of your desired first segment and the last segment of your choice to read its length. Double-clicking on any of the segment starting points selects the whole object for measuring or clears the start and end points.

  5. Close the tool when done.
