Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to measure the length of selected track in the current design.


This command is accessed from the PCB Editor by choosing the Reports » Measure Selected Objects command from the main menus.


First, ensure that the entire length of track that you wish to include in the measurement is selected.

After launching the command, an information dialog will appear, detailing the total measured length of the track. The measurement is also entered as an entry in the Messages panel.


  • Measurable primitives can be either routed track (net-aware) or lines (track that is not net-aware). Arc objects can also be included in the measurement.
  • Measurements are returned in both metric and imperial units.
  • To copy the contents of the information dialog to Windows Clipboard, press Ctrl+C when the dialog is open.
