Speaking of measurements: is there a better way for
measuring distances than copying the numbers from the
status line into a calculator ?
A couple of ways:
a) In pcbnew, add a dimension. Then delete it.
b) In either pcbnew or eeschema, choose the graphic line tool. Click on
the starting point, hit the space bar to zero the coordinates at the
current point, then observe the offset in the status bar as you move the
mouse. Hit escape to cancel the line.
