part of an object? I know that I can measure all the way around an object but I am trying to make a 3d purse and I need to only make the side panel, the one that would start 3/4 of the way on one side, down the bottom and 3/4 of the way up on the other side....i' ve attached the object I want to measure.
thanks

    @Jules thanks so much, so I just have to measure all the sides separately, duh, didn't think of that! :) thanks again.

    Bryan demonstrated how to measure just a portion of a design during one of the recent Webinars - I think it was May 8 or April24. Type F2 for the node editing tool. Click on the starting place, right click and use Break. Do the same at the ending point. Now you can click on the measuring tool, and should get a precise measurement from from the start to the finish.

    I didn't even realize there was a measuring tool. Learned something today!
