Trying to find a feature that was in previous versions

Hello all. In previous versions of SketchUp the program automatically measured all lines that were being drawn in proper lengths (meters, feet etc.).
However, in this version, this feature seems to have disappeared. Is there any way to find it again

Have you got the Measurements box displayed. Like any other toolbar, you can now have it pretty much wherever you like. It’s no longer built into the status bar as it was in previous versions (when it was formerly known as the VCB (value control box).
You can also right-click the status bar and check the relevant features that you want…including the Measurements box and values.

Also be aware that if you have precision set low, the values displayed may be rounded using “~” character(s).

Change precision at: Window > Model Info > Units
