With the release of Cubit 9.1, there is a new feature added to the Home ribbon. This tool is called the Ruler and allows users to create measurement lines on currently opened plans. Lines created with the ruler tool will not contribute towards any takeoff values.
The ruler button is found under the home ribbon in the drawing section.

It is used very similarly to the polyline tool
- Click on the ruler button to select the tool.
- Click on the plan to start measuring, A line will be created from the starting point to the current cursor location. Much like the polyline tool, single clicking will create this line. The length of the line will be represented by a number displayed under the line.
- Click on the plan again to complete the drawing of the ruler line.
