View grids

Use grids to accurately line up text and objects in a document. When turned on, the grid is visible over the document. The Snap To Grid option aligns an object with the nearest grid line when you move the object.

View or hide the grid

  1. Choose View > Show/Hide > Rulers & Grids > Grid. A check mark appears next to the command name when the grid is displayed.

Turn the Snap To Grid option on or off

  1. Choose View > Show/Hide > Rulers & Grids > Snap To Grid. A check mark appears next to the command name when the option is turned on.

Change the grid appearance

  1. In the Preferences dialog box under Categories, select Units & Guides.

  2. To change grid settings, do any of the following:
    • To change the spacing between grid lines, enter a value for Width Between Lines and Height Between Lines.

    • To change the origin of the grid, enter a value for Grid Offset From Left Edge and Grid Offset From Top Edge.

    • To change the number of subdivisions within each grid square, enter a value for Subdivisions. Subdivision lines are lighter than grid lines.

    • To change the color of the grid lines, click the Grid Line Color square and choose a new color from the Color pop-up menu.

Create ruler guides

Horizontal and vertical rulers let you check the size of objects in your document. You can also create guides in your document, which are especially useful for lining up objects, such as form fields. You can change the unit of measurement and color used in the ruler.

Create new ruler guides

  1. Choose View > Show/Hide > Rulers & Grids > Rulers.

  2. Do one of the following:
    • Drag down from the horizontal ruler to create a horizontal guide, or drag right from the vertical ruler to create a vertical guide.

    • Double-click a location on the horizontal ruler to create a vertical guide, or double-click a location on the vertical ruler to create a horizontal guide.

Show or hide guides

  1. Choose View > Show/Hide > Rulers & Grids > Guides.

Move or delete ruler guides

  1. To move a guide, click the guide to select it and then drag it to a new location.

  2. To delete a guide, click the guide to select it and press the Delete key.

  3. To delete all guides, right-click in the ruler area and choose Clear All Guides or Clear Guides On Page.

Change guide colors

  1. In the Preferences dialog box under Categories, select Units & Guides.

  2. Click the Guide Color square and choose a new color from the Color pop-up menu.

Measure the height, width, or area of objects

Use the measuring tools to measure distances and areas of objects in PDF documents. The measuring tools are useful for showing the distances and areas associated with objects in a form or computer-aided design (CAD) drawing. You can also use these tools to measure certain areas of a document before sending it to a professional printer. The measuring tools are available to Acrobat Reader users only if the PDF creator enables measuring functionality.

When you use a measuring tool, the Measurement Info panel shows information about the measurement, such as current measurement, delta values, and scale ratio. Acrobat inserts comments with the values calculated for distance, perimeter, or area.

    • Select the Distance tool to measure the distance between two points. Click the first point, move the pointer to the second point, and click again.

    • Select the Perimeter tool to measure a set of distances between multiple points. Click each point you want to measure. Then, double-click the last point. 

    • Select the Area tool to measure the area within the line segments that you draw. Click each point you want to measure. After you have clicked at least two points, click the first point to complete the area measurement. 

  4. While measuring objects, do any of the following:
    • To snap the measurement to the end of a line, select Snap To Paths .

    • To snap the measurement to the endpoint of a line, select Snap To Endpoints .

    • To snap the measurement to the midpoint of a line, select Snap To Midpoints .

    • To snap the measurement to the intersection of multiple lines, select Snap To Intersections 

    • To constrain the measurement lines to increments of 45º, hold down the Shift key.

    • To discontinue a measurement, right-click and choose Cancel Measurement.

    • To delete a measurement markup, click it with the Measurement Tool and press the Delete key.

Use Default Leader Length (Distance Tool only)

When deselected, each time you draw a distance measurement, you move the mouse to determine the leader length.

Default Line Start

Specifies the appearance of the starting line in distance measurements.

Default Line End

Specifies the appearance of the ending line in distance measurements.

Caption Style (Distance Tool only)

Specifies whether the distance measurement caption is Inside or on Top of the measurement line.
