Measuring

Grid

To help you align objects on a page go to Arrange > Show Grid or Arrange > Snap to Grid. Set the spacing of the grid in Preferences > General.

Ruler

For a measurement guide show a ruler along the top of the Page view area by choosing Format > Text > Show Ruler (Command+Control+R). With a specific text box selected for editing, the ruler also provides controls for formatting text such as options to adjust style, alignment, spacing, and create numbered or bulleted lists.

Measurements

measurement-tool-1

To measure the distance between two objects on the page, click the Measurements tool in the Toolbar. Click and drag between objects to see the distance. Set the units in Preferences > General.

If your drawing already has units built-in, such as a drawing generated from an architectural program, then those units will be shown using the measurements tool.
