Measure Tool SPRs: Increment/decrement precision & toggle current dual units on/off

Hello all,


In case this is of interest to you, I received two notices from Mr. Ruepp that two of my ERs are now SPRs.


Both involve the Measure tool:

  • SPR 1100520: "It should be possible to increase/decrease the measurement result by adding/removing decimal places on the fly"
  • SPR 1100518: "There should be an easy way to toggle units in the measure dialog or display dual dimensions"


Each is a request for simpler methods to increment/decrement the displayed precision (temporarily) and to toggle on/off the current dual units (temporarily)

Both of these features are currently available in Tool's options, but are several dialogs deep and are (relatively) permanent changes.


These SPRs don't alter the current options, it's simply a request to add these simple adjustments to the Measure Tool's main window for ready access for a quick precision change or for a quick view of what the dual units measurements are.
