    Hi,
    Can you tell me how to add vertex on a polygon feature by adding vertex manually? And, how do I modify the polygon by just moving the added vertex ?

      Hi, no – the measurement tool is designed to do quick measurement on the map. If you need to do some permanent measurements you need to create a layer and draw your polygons or polylines there.

    Hi
    I am have a problem with the measure tool. It isn’t showing the total distance at the bottom of the page. The bearing shows up and I also have the intermediate distances but I’m not seeing the total distance. It also does it on the area measure – I get the perimeter but not the area. Do you have any suggestions as to what the problem might be?
