```I want to measure from a round face to a flat but when I select the round
face it goes to the center of the round object, how can I measure the
distance from the edge of the round object to the edge of the flat object?

```

```Try selecting the edge of the round object rather than the face.  This
should give you the closest dimension from the round edge to the flat.

```If your hole and flat are  in a different plane then you can get your edge
distance.  For example: Pick the top edge of your thru hole and  bottom edge
of the flat.  You will then get a diagonal measurement and you can read you
x y z distance.  Sometime you will get an edge distance by picking the  flat
and hole edge in the same plane.   For 2 holes pick the top edge of one and
the bottom edge of the other.

Another trick is to create an assembly Cut feature or feature cut in a part.
This creates a "section view" and all silhouette  edges become lines.  It is
then very easy to use the measure tool.  You can  turn off you "section" by
suppressing the feature.
