I’ve tried to do this, but hit a problem: I want to put the window hiding code in
willDeactivate, but due to recent changes,
willDeactivate is called when I click on the floating window, which of course makes it immediately disappear. I don’t know how to say “deactivated and now using a different tool.”
Related, I would ideally like to be able to set up the start and end points using the current UI, and then be able to show the thicknesses while dragging points around. In other words, I need something that combines the functionality of a tool and a reporter. I’ve heard that in 2.3 this is possible, but I don’t know of any documentation/examples of how to achieve it.
Any ideas from the devs?
