Hello All,


I really love SolidWorks, the more I use it the more I like it. In so many ways I feel the software is very well throughout and very intuitive.


OK, here comes one thing I don't like - the measure tool.


I really thought I just did not understand how this worked until I just got of the phone with my VAR and they confirmed the issues I am having.


I have been designing for 20 years and in every package I have used, I always have had the ability to measure anything. In SW, I can't get a distance from and intersection to another


Please someone tell me I am crazy and this tool is useful?


Also, what if I simply want to get a distance between two cursor positions? I really feel this tool needs a tremendous amount of work.


I would appreciate any schooling on this tool from the users that know it much better.
