Double click to get the hammer.

Move the cursor to the point you want to measure the 1500 from.

Type X or Y (for horizontal/vertical - X for your image above) and then 1500 +/- (depending on the direction you want to go and then ENTER.

You said “Your explanation is to point the mouse at the reference point, specify the direction of the X and Y axes with the key, and specify the relative distance as 1500+.” Is that correct?

 

You're saying to use the "+" you pointed out. ^^

Today too I wish you a happy week start. ^^

thank you
It's sad that I can only tell you this.
If it were Korea, I would have eaten soju and sashimi by the seaside with you. Or, live octopus, which foreigners fear, is also possible. ^^

Is there a way to make the text appear like this?

I don't have these borders.

It is an On-screen View Option.

Your menus may be a bit different to my customised ones.

Yeah, I'm not sure about the live octopus!

Thank you for always.
There are many delicious things in Korea, but there are many things that are not well known in the video. Only beach people like me ate....
It came up a lot in the video.

FYI, for "Feet and Inches" you need to remember to type "- -" (2 dashes) to go in the negative direction.

Typing " - +"  (dash, plus sign) also works.
