Measure tool not measuring correctly

The measure tool is not giving me the correct measurement. For example, I offset a line 24' and when I go to double check the distance it is off by .03. That is starting on the original line and doing a perpendicular snap to the other line. So I thought, wait a minute that can't be right, so I drew a line between the two lines and did an inquiry and it gave me 24'. I also did a dimension which also was correct. I also measured a 97' line and it was off by 3 feet. Never had issues with previous versions of Autocad as far as measuring.


Is there something I am missing? Is there a calibration for the measure tool?

Any elevation difference? Possibly snapping to something in the same location but at a different elevation to the original line?

What are your results using the DIST command?

Haha. I am a dumbass. My command prompt wasn?t up far enough to read all
the data. I was reading x or y plane.
