down on the left hand side in corel there is a measure tool Call "Parrallel Dimension Tool" you just have to click on one side of the object you want to measure and hold and drop to the other side it will have the measurement of it.

or if you and trying to figure out the over all size high light the complete object and in the upper left corner beside the xy it will tell you the size

hope this helps

If you have rulers set to show, click the top left corner and drag the ruler to your starting point then move the mouse to the other point look you want to measure back at the ruler you will see the mouse position not exact but great for quickness also zoom in for better accuracy.

Yes guys, the icon where the parallels are can all be used for measuring. Even angles between too lines that instersect. I never actually used the parallels for nothing so didn't know it could do all this. Tks a lot
