Click w to start measuring a line in the WebOffice flex client. Depending on your WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project configuration the tool form will appear differently:

Measure with predefined styles

Measure with style dialogue

 

Start your drawing by clicking into the map, finish with a double click or by clicking ^. If you click k while drawing, any valid unfinished measurements (any line with at least two vertices) will be finished. Click Clear to remove any existing drawings. Click Send Email to open your Mail client and send a link with the current drawings.

 

Measure with Predefined Styles

A tool dialog will open that lets you choose the predefined markup style for your drawing. Additionally, decide whether to display measurements in the map or just the drawing.

Note: Predefined markup styles will define the stroke color, fill color, text color, text background color, line width and text size.

Note: VertiGIS recommends to favor this option instead of the style dialogue since it is easier for the user and reduces user interface complexity.
