Quick Measure command in AutoCAD (MEASUREGEOM)
In the latest version of AutoCAD 2020, measuring distances, areas or circumference of objects can be quickly manipulated by the Quick Measure command or the MEASUREGEOM command
You can access the new feature on Ribbon > Utilities > Measure > Quick.
By Quick Measure, you can check the length of the line , the distance of the sides, the radius of the circle or the arc
