Just noticed that the Measure tool on the left and the Measurement of Edge Lengths under Overlays give different results, here - 3.65 and 3.76791. EDIT - something is completely wrong there, just look at the vertical measurement which shows 31.6131 :-O

I'm using v3.4.1 on Linux. Is that expected?

    $\begingroup$ Does the object have unapplied scale? Scale should be 1,1,1 you can Ctrl+A and apply scale if needed. $\endgroup$ Jan 31, 2023 at 21:08

The measure tool measures world space, where these measurements are taking the object's Scale into account. You can apply the object's scale to reset it.

In Object Mode with the object selected, press Ctrl + A for the apply menu and select Scale.
