Measurement tools suggestion

Post by Brass Monkey » Thu May 24, 2012 10:26 pm

Just a thought, but one that could be useful for machinists in particular - a measurement tool that can snap to a point as per usual, but then just displays the drawing coordinates in X and Y. This could be expanded to the dimensions tool set, so that you can click on a point and print the coordinates next to it. Anyone else think this would be useful?

That would be very useful indeed.
Feature request added: ... ask_id=604

Although you can gather this info from the Property Editor > Geometry info (select an entity first)

Such a tool exists, but one must do X then Y coordinate. I have used it several times.
