Ruler – On Screen

Tips and Tricks Khan 24 February 2023



The Ruler is an editing aid that can be placed at the top and left side of the screen in every Archicad window, except the 3D Window and Schedules.


Use the Ruler as an aid in navigation: it lets you know where you are in the project, at the current zoom.

Show/Hide Ruler

Use the View > Ruler toggle to show or hide the Ruler.

You can also hide a ruler by right-clicking it and clicking the Ruler toggle.

As you move the cursor on screen, feedback on the ruler shows you the vertical and horizontal position of the cursor relative to the User Origin (or, if no User Origin has been created, relative to the Project Origin).
