Summary0001263: Allow On-The-Fly Constraints for Measure Distance Tool
DescriptionThe Measure Distance tool (tape measure icon) could be more helpful if the user could toggle to constrain distance to the X, Y, and Z axes if needed. Another helpful feature would be if a user could select two parallel faces having for example different locations on the Z-axis) then click the Measure Distance tool and get the distance between faces. This was mentioned in the following forum thread:

Is this bug still relevant, now that the Part workbench has the Measure toolbar?

Requested functionality was implemented differently through the Measure tools in the Part workbench.
