    Hello Klayout Experts,
    With partial I do select two orthogonal edges of a polygon.
    How could I get the the (x,y) coordinates of the edge enclosed by the 2 orthogonal selected lines of the polygon?
    I'm able to get all (x,y) corners of the polygon but need it only of one didicated edge.

    What works is to draw a box covering the edge, run a booloean opertion and use the bbox coordinates.
    But I would prefer to partial select the edge ...
    Any idea would be highly appriciated.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Andy,

    How about using the new "Cross" "ruler"? Just select this ruler type, and click close to the corner you want to measure. A cross is placed at the mouse location. If you're close enough to a corner, the point will snap to the corner and the coordinate shown reflects the position of the corner.

    Awesome Matthias - works perfect. It's quite easy to fetch the x,y position in a script.
    We love the new rulers of 0.25 ...

    Thanks for your feedback,
