Polyline Totaling

When drawing, sometimes product placement isn't the goal. With that in mind, it would be nice for Measure to show a running total of linear footage on the bottom bar of the screen when using the polyline function, whether angled, right-angled, or whatever. For instance, if you have a room that would take 7 edges to complete the room, but you only need the linear footage of 3 contiguous pieces, it would be nice to see the polyline running total of the linear footage at the bottom of the screen.

    Hi Joel,

    This is an interesting suggestion that would not be difficult to add. I can certainly see the merit in being able to see linear footage as you draw. We may not get to it right away but I will make sure it is considered.

    For now, though, I would suggest using a perimeter based add-on with the "Selected Segments" calculation method. In the example below, I just wanted to apply covebase to the three bottom segments, so I selected the room, ctrl+clicked each segment so that they were all selected, and applied covebase. Since specific sides of the room were selected when the covebase was assigned, the software understood that I only wanted it to be applied to those segments.
