Measuring with the static magnifier
- Use the mouse to move the crosshairs to approximately where you want to measure the point.
- Let go of the mouse.
- Make the fine adjustment with the arrow keys on the keyboard.

- Switch on the floating magnifier with the middle mouse button or the space bar.
- The magnifier moves in 1 pixel steps in the image, with [Ctrl] you can move faster and with [Shift] you can move slower.
- When the point is set precisely enough, confirm the measurement with the left mouse button or [ENTER].
- If necessary, switch the magnifier off again with the middle mouse button or the space bar.
