    I just bought it and it works great. But I would strongly recommend adding a macro feature so we could use it directly from the toolbar or via keyboard shortcut, because the whole point of this script is to have a quick measurement. I tried creating my own macroscript with “startObjectCreation” command calling the tool but it seems that the class is not registered properly until the first use of the tool during a given session.
