Feature suggestion for measurement tool

Hi guys,

Would it be possible for the measurement tool to measure distances between all visible lines, even lines in the background or any other sublayer that is set to visible? It could be done with something like option+drag if it is possible.

Why?

Why not? BTW I don’t mean that this should be the default behaviour. I am suggesting it as an alt behaviour activated by key+tool.

i.e. I have a line in background and another one in foreground and I want to see how far apart these two are.

The use case strikes me as too rare to validate adding this to the app. You could write a reporter plug-in for this.

OK. I would say that it is an option that potentially might come in handy to others but I don’t want to put any pressure on you! I haven’t played around with writing plug-ins. Perhaps I will have a try. Thanks.
