i am trying to measure distance in mine, everything worked fine until yesterday when suddenly the measure box didnt show up, thereforr i cant see the results.

As you can see on the picture, the measure line can be seen, but not the results. As i said, everything worked fine until yesterday.

Any help?

Measure line can be seen but not the results

  • Welcome to GIS:SE @Martin! What happens if you select another measuring tool? Does the result window still not show up?

  • I'm using QGIS v2.18.13 on Win 10 and same happened to me recently. After restarting the interface, still can't see the measure window popup. Only when using angle measure, as Martin said.

You can restart the interface:

Configuration > system > restart interface.



Just found "my" measure window. It was hidden nearly outside the desktop.

Additional suggestion to solve the problem:

  1. Reduce QGIS window
  2. Click the measure tool and start measuring
  3. Try to find the measure window somewhere on the limit of the desktop area.
  4. Must be done to "Measure Line" and "Measure Area", since they're two different windows.
