make measured dimension visible from all angles

Status: Future Consideration
by Contributor Pontooon January |

Using the measure tool, the displayed dimension is not always visible from the preferred angle. I often use screenshots and must later edit them with MS Paint to make  a dimension clear. Maybe you could make the dimension float above all the geometry or be manipulated in 3d?

Also, can you make it so the floating gray box is movable too? I'd like to move that out of the way for screenshots. 

 

Thanks.

And perhaps while we are at it, maybe make them a bit more "color aware"? On a white background, or working with a light colored component, the dimensions are very hard to see
