How Can I Measure the Distance Between Two Points?

Measuring the distance between two points is easy.  From the main menu, select Edit> Inquiry> Distance.  Move the mouse and click on the two points whose separate distance you want to measure. The distance will be reported at the bottom of the screen and/or in the Output window. As a bonus, you also get the clockwise rotation of the ray that starts at the first point and passes through the second, relative to due north.
