    As I edit vertices, I usually know how far I want to move it due to consistent distances and measurements.  I'd like to see a distance-moved popup bubble showing how far I've moved the vertex.  You could move the vertex, release the selection and then grab it and move, knowing the straight distance right then.  I work on measuring property along a rail line and know the distance from track center.  Could save a ton of time when you know how far you need to move a vertex.  Kinda like integrating the Measure tool into the editing features. 

    Hopefully others will agree with this idea.
