Measuring tool stopped working in Feb 2021

Hi, Acrobat Pro DC has changed the icon from black to red and now displays a (32-bit) bracket in the top application bar. Following this change, the measuring tool has stopped working for me. I can't finish a measurement, be it a line or area. I can click the first point, it normally snaps to an intersection / corner, I can click the final point but can't get the measurement to finish. 

I tried repairing the installation (Help-Repair installation), I also tried restarting the laptop, neither one worked.

Is there a solution to this please?

Hi Pavel!

 

Thank you for reaching out.

 

As the measuring tool is not working for you, we tried to replicate the issue at our end and it is working fine.

Would you mind sharing the Acrobat Pro DC and OS version on the machine. You may use the steps suggested in the following help document to check the Application version: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/identify-product-version.html 

It would be helpful if you can share a small video of the issue occurring at your end and the sample PDF on which the issue occurs. 

 

Thanks,

Meenakshi

This happened to me as well but I found a fix. Go to measure, right-click, go to preferences, un-check "Use scale and Units from Document (when present)."

 

For some reason my file has another scale embedded in it somewhere that was conflicting the measuring tool for distance and area. 

 

Hope this helps!

Hello Peter,

It's good for you that measuring tool is working for you, I tried your suggested solution and it worked once. When I attempted to measure at different spot measurement disappered.

Thanks for the sharing.

I have just had this issue, I managed to fix it by right mouse clicking (when on the measuring tool), and then select "Enable Measurement Markup"
