    Has anyone else had problems trying to design something to a specific dimension in Arcgis? trying to draw a line that is 50m long is almost impossible. I shouldn't need to go to the measure tool, measure my distance. and then go and try to recreate that while designing my feature. Similarly, when designing multipatch features in pro. it would be nice to know how high you just extruded your 3D feature! 

     

    A display of the cursor distance from the last vertex would solve this!

    Kind of like the measure tool. but while creating features.

     

    Come on esri! you can do it!
