Is it possible to measure the distance between two elements?

Emerson Smith shared this question 2 years ago

I know I can easily calculate the distance between elements using the left and top positions, and/or it's height and width, but I was wondering if there was a tool that will automatically tell me the distance in px between two elements. For example, in my screenshot I'd want to know the distances between the rectangles.

Dear Emerson,

Our engineers are working on this feature, however, there is no set date when this will be implemented. Meanwhile, as a workaround, you could introduce a rectangle in the gap between each element so you can see the width between them.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Thanks donna. I've found it is easiest to apply vertical or horizontal guides, align them to my element, then caculate the distance that way.
