The distance value will be shown in centimeters (or millimeters).

Note, for thick slabs (MIP, MinIP, Avg), the length is measured in the viewing plane, which means that the different depths of the structures are not taken into account.

 

You can move the entire segment or one of its endings by dragging while pressing the left mouse button.

The label may also be dragged to a more convenient place if necessary.

 

Press  Shift  while drawing the segment to make it either vertical or horizontal.
