Make Unit Measurements Font Larger? Solved

Does anyone know if it’s possible to make the font bigger for the Unit Measurements? It’s really hard to see with the dark background/my object behind it. I found where you can increase the size of everything including that, but I have to make everything else massive to see it.

Just found where to change the colour, which helps a lot, but still would love to see it bigger.
File>Preferences>Themes>3D View>Edge Length Text to change colour.


there is an addon for measure where you can set the font size !

I wasn’t familiar with add-on. Thank you! I’ve got it installed now, but I don’t seem to have the “Items” dropdown that I see on the official page that lets you change the Unit type. I would like it in Feet and Inches, but it’s it’s defaulted to gibberish. Any chance you know how I can get to the menu where I can change that?

depends which version you are using
i only have 2.9 and 2.79

try to find video tut for your version

I’m using 2.82.7.
Unfortunately I can’t watch videos with my internet. But thank you for the help! You got me half way there. :slight_smile:

here is 2 min video

MeasureIt Tools Addon in Blender 2.9 - Bing video

got to be in edit mode
set hide mode at top

select 2 verts

activate segment and it should show the measure
then set other parameters

there is another addon to show length

but not as powerful as measure it

happy bl

Thank you so much! I had to activate segments to get the items menu to appear.

I dared to pick the above as solution since you surely hinted. Please tell me if that is not OK. :blush: Cheers!

I was wondering if I could flag the solution. Thanks!

Sure you can, whenever you really feel like it. It helps the community after all. If you don’t feel like that, I can un-check and we will wait for another knight of Blender :grin:

That’s alright! I hardly ever use this site, so I didn’t know I could. I selected a different comment as well, but the one you chose is also the answer.
