Dimension tool ID




I would like to see which dimension option is picked by changing the mouse pointer respectively. I can never get the hang of hitting "n" on the keyboard and remembering that the last dimension option I used is not necessarily the one I want now.


Maybe the single letters L (Linear) C (Chain) B (Baseline) O (Ordinate) S (Selected) could appear above the mouse cursor to tell me what option is active 😊


At the moment, the Linear and Selected have one mouse cursor, and the Chain, Baseline and Ordinate have another, but I use Chain and Ordinate which have the same, and it's annoying.

Another idea would be simply 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. so that it can be implemented typically to all tools with options.
