TCAD 17 Is there a way to measure orthogonally from a node to a line in the same work plane? Can't seem to use "nearest" to snap to the line from the node.

One way: Draw a new line starting at the node (by pressing V with the cursor on that node), then move the cursor to the existing line and press J. Select the new line and the Selection Info palette will report its length.
