#6515 closed enhancement (fixed)

Allow switching to "miles" from "kilometers" in status bar measurement section

Description (last modified by Don-vip)

I would love for it to be possible to have the status bar measurement section to be able to be switched back and forth between kilometers and miles by just left clicking on it.

The reason is because sometimes I write down the mileage (in miles from the trip meter in my car) from an intersection to a road sign (like for when the speed limit changes) so I can split the way at the correct place where the speed limit goes up/down since I don't have a GPS unit (well, my camera has one, but it takes forever to get new coordinates when I want them and if I'm driving, it's not possible to use that function of it).

Being able to use the status bar measurement section to help in getting the correct location would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for implementing this! I really appreciate it.

Just one suggestion about a tad more improvement to this. Would it be possible to let the user to limit which measurements to cycle through? I would personally like to limit it myself to just Miles and Kilometers since I do all my editing in just the US and Canada. And those are the measurements both countries use. I'd prefer not to have to cycle through the other few that are there for other countries if possible just to switch back between the two. Thanks.

When your original enhancement request has been fulfilled and your are adding a new requirements you should create a new ticket instead. Otherwise with changing requirements in the same ticket it's harder for developers to track which tickets have been dealt with for good. I went ahead and created the new ticket #8859
You can also help the developers by suggesting ways to implement your new requirement. See the new ticket for one such question you can help with answering.

Claudius, that's why I didn't reopen this ticket myself and left it to Don. No reason you had to go on the attack. If Don had asked me to create a separate ticket for the "tweak", I would have done that.
