Measure distance with Gerbv


#1

Hallo,
I have a set of gerber files without the original source. I want to measure some distances in the layout. According to the manual, it is possible to do that with the Gerbv tool.
But I couldn’t find out how :frowning:
Can you please explain me how to do that?

Thank you

There is the same coordinate readout like you got in PCBnew (with distance from last position - mark with [space] and your current one)… right lower edge of the window.
Can’t find a way to snap to the center of pads though, so the accuracy then depends on what you want to measure.
