Hello everyone.

I would be interested in having a "measures" function that give me a few results.

-Get the area of an amorphous object.
-Get the length of a line when it is not vertical or horizontal.
-obtain measures between nodes on non-straight lines.
-Get a total length of all lines of a document and total of all areas of all document.

it seems that they are banal things without importance for the majority of users, I know.

but I work with engraving and laser cutting devices. and believe me that these options would make my job much easier, by determining beforehand the time it will take for each job, and being able to more easily calculate my costs.

even if it is not a new tool, but in the bar below the total could be displayed in cm2 when selecting a closed object, and the length when selecting a curved line. That would be very helpful.

As always, I am very happy with the software, good job.

Thanks in advance.
