Improve Measurement Tool in Designer

Recommended Posts

Two related requests:

 

1. It would be nice to be able to read measurements using the Measurement tool without having to zoom in to 1600% all the  time.

2. It would also be nice to have measurements be visible on blue objects.

 

Sketch does this very, very well. Attached is a screeenshot of the same objects at 100% in both apps with measurements displayed using the default measurement tools (Option-hold in Sketch, CMD-hold in Affinity Designer).  I recolored the background in the AD for a second screenshot to highlight that the text on measurements should probably change when the background is near the same blue as the default font color.

Related to this: In some cases it may be quite difficult to read measurements and other text on screen in normal (96) DPI settings. Any plans to improve this somehow?

I wanted to know is there a way to see in real time the measurements between objects like in Sketch, in Sketch we just have to hold alt (option) on MAC and I see all measurement from an object and in relations with others can we do this in Affinity Designer?

CMD doesn't work...

Thank You
