Why does the measure command tell me that measure linear distance fails?

Measure Linear Distance Fails 

It is important to know that the measurement tool can only calculate linear measurements in certain conditions.  

If two planes or lines are selected then you will get this error if they are not parallel.  This can be solved by selecting a different combination of points/faces/edges.

You can also trigger this error if you select two coplanar faces or edges.
