Once, the ruler tool is enabled you can use following actions:
\li <b>Click</b> on a point on your mesh places the ruler on the mesh, click on another point to get the <b>distance</b>.
\li <b>Doubleclick</b> for <b>resetting</b> the ruler.
\li <b>Modify</b> the ruler simply by <b>clicking</b> on another point in your mesh. In this case, the nearest end of the ruler will go to this position.
\li <b>Modify</b> the ruler can also be done, by clicking on an ending point and then simply <b>drag</b> this ending point to a position.
\note If you click outside of your mesh, the ruler gets a reset.
