Better measuring tools

This program needs the ability to measure along any path or between curves and diagonal lines. Also having live measurement of the line being an available option would also be helpful

AI and Inkscape both have a tool that would tell you the measurement of a path, and will give you the length of the path instead of just the dimensions of the bounding box.Only having the bounding box measurements and not having the measurements show up until after releasing the shape also slows down workflow. For making digital patterns or SVG cut files for home cutting machines require some precise measurements and it takes twice as long to have to make a shape, release to check measurements, adjust size then move the object to the correct spot because it shifted when changing the size.

Workflow will speed up if these are added to the program.

Yes I’am agree with you could be useful.
