I'm having troublr finding the correct forum to ask this question. its in MS Office section but    i've got no response.

When I use the free form line tool to draw a line I need to be able to measure the line length.

When I  click on the line and view its properties I get a length and wide for an object which is actually a rectangle formed as a best fit between points on my free form line. Which is not what I want.

Is this a known bug or an I taking the wrong approach.

Measuring and Dividing Objects:
  When you need to identify specific intervals on an object, you can use the MEASURE and DIVIDE commands.

-MEASURE specifies the length of each segment.
-DIVIDE specifies the number of equal segments.

With both methods, you can identify the intervals by inserting either a point object or a named set of objects known as a symbol or a block.



Am I getting somewhere???

On 8/28/2001 I provided the following comment to your question in the Microsoft Office section.  Let me know if it works:

Try right clicking on the line.  Then choose View|Size & Position.  You should see a box in the lower
left hand corner with the following information: Begin X; Begin Y; End X; End Y; Length; Angle; and
Height.  

If the length shown is not what you want, you can left click on the box and put in the values you are
looking for.  I'm using Visio 2000.
