Am I being obtuse, or has the Measure tool been removed?

I'm sure I used it when I first started using OnShape.  I can't find it anymore.  The help files say it should be at the right end of the bottom of the screen, but there's nothing there.   Is it only on certain screens?  I want to measure some hole diameters on an assembly without going back and editing the sketches.  Thanks.

    Thanks everyone.  The help files show a little icon that looks like a pair of dividers, and that was what I kept looking for.  I didn't think to just select something on the assembly.  Works great.  Now back to work.

    The help files should be updated to reflect this change. Measuring is now automatic and doesn't require selecting a tool. I got stuck searching for the none existing tool that is described in the help.
