Tape Measure Tool No longer leaving the tick mark

I’m sure it’s a setting that I’ve accidentally changed, but when I click in one location and drag the tape measure tool to another location and click again, I’m no longer seeing the little tick mark for that measurement. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Are you referring to the guidepoint?

Make sure Guides is checked in the View menu. Did you press Ctrl while using the Tape Measure tool? If so, what happens if you press it again?

Does the cursor look like this?

Or like this?

That was it. Guides in View menu. THANKS SO MUCH. It was driving me crazy

Good deal. I expect you found all sorts of guides when you turned them back on.

If you aren’t already doing so, I would suggest getting rid of guides as soon as they’ve served their purpose. I’ve set up a keyboard shortcut for Delete Guides which gets used frequently.
