Click the first point, move the pointer to the second point, and click again.
The measurements will appear on the page.
Select the Perimeter Tool
to measure a set of distance between multiple
points. Click the first point to start, and then click each point you want to
measure. Double-click the last point to end measuring.
Select the Area Tool

To change the scaling ratio (such as 1:2) on the drawing areas, specify the
appropriate numbers in the tool dialog box. If necessary, change the unit of
measurement next to this ratio.
Check Measurement Markup in the tool dialog box if you want the lines you
draw to appear as a comment. You can put the pointer over the
measurement with the Hand tool selected so that you can view the
measurement and annotation you have drawn.
Note: The object you draw will disappear when the Measurement Markup is
deselected in the tool dialog box.
