Is anyone aware of any plugins that can give the length of a line?

I'm obviously not talking about a straight line here, but one that has curves in it.

many thanks

Lines a straight (ie have no curves). So what exactly do you mean?

Do you want the length of a curve (straight or curved) or do you perhaps want the sum length of multiple continuous line segments (polylines)?

well as a for instance.

If I was to draw a curve/line using the sketch tool or the bezier tool, is there a plugin that will give me a close approximation of how long the line is that I have drawn?

Cheers

I tried that but it won't install in 9.6.

hmm... works fine for me with 9.6 (build 1539- Win32).
I use it quite often.

Silly me, work pretty much always in 64 bit, didn't cross my mind it was a 32 bit plug.

Given the date of the plugin I should have realised.

cheers
