To measure a flat area during a video collaboration live call,

  1. Tap the ruler icon [ruler icon].
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions until your device recognizes a surface.
  3. Move the reticle [reticle] to the starting point of the measurement.
  4. Tap Add measurement [add measurement].
  5. Move the reticle [reticle] to the ending point of the measurement.
  6. Tap Add measurement [add measurement].
  7. Repeat steps three through six to measure the remaining lines.
Each end of a line acts like a magnet and snaps the reticle to it if the reticle is close. You can start or end a new line on any end of an existing line by moving the reticle [reticle] close enough to the end of the line that the reticle snaps to it, then tap Add measurement [add measurement] to either start or complete the line segment.
The perpendicular line tool appears whenever the first segment of a line is marked. This allows for easy measuring of height or width and helps ensure easy measuring of surfaces that might be difficult to measure, such as heights on a wall. To measure the height on a wall, mark a point on the floor, move the reticle [reticle] to follow the vertical line up until you reach the desired stopping point and tap Add measurement [add measurement] to end the line segment.
