Measurement Callouts (2023 SP2)

When you measure two parallel entities, the normal distance is displayed in the graphics area. Previously the distance was displayed in the Measure pane only.

Normal distance is the distance of a line perpendicular to the parallel entities. By having the distance displayed in the graphics area, you can see the measurement directly in the model instead of looking in the Measure pane. In the image above, the yellow line is the projection of the entity when the two parallel entities are offset to create the normal distance line, which is purple.
