Distance, Angle or Rectangle

  1. Press and hold at the measurement starting point 
  2. Drag and release when you reach your desired endpoint
  3. You will be prompted with a default number which you can then change (Distance and Angle only)

Polygon

  1. Press and hold at the measurement starting point 
  2. Drag and release when you reach the first corner of the polygon
  3. Repeat this drag and release process until Polygon has been defined
  4. HELPFUL HINT - while it is not possible to move existing points while you are creating the polygon, once you have accepted your basic outline ( by tapping on the checkmark at the bottom of the screen) you can then go back and drag individual points.
