Abstract: n/a

  A line object (with extobj::role=edit, on any layer) can be a basis of a dimension line. The dimension line will stand out above the base line and will print the length of the base line. As the base line is moved or resized, the dimension line follows. The user can drag&drop move the dimension line to determine its distance from the base line. The dimension line can be drawn on any layer.
