YardstickPlus is a small Utility, which helps you to measure anything, you can display on your screen. You draw a line or a polygon across the document to measure and Yardstick tells you the overall length and the area enclosed by the polygon.
Starting YardstickPlus will create an transparent layer over your entire screen, where you can draw lines or polygons. A small panel shows you the length of the aggregated polygon segments, the area enclosed by the polygon and the angle of the last line segment.
YardstickPlus adds a zoomed view, which allows precise positioning of the polygon segments for better precision of measurement.
An option to show the size and angle of each segment on the screen has been added.
Further, YardstickPlus adds an editor for measuring units, allowing to add old or unusual length and area units on historical maps.
Attention: No multi display support!
