Measure edits dynamically

Idea created by 1_jbrockwe on Sep 4, 2014

    I would like to measure lines as I am digitizing them. I would like a rolling figure for total length and a figure for segment length. It would be nice if it appears as text similar to snapping information appearing when you get near another segment or vertex somewhere in the Map View. I can't believe ArcGIS Desktop doesn't have this funtionality built-in.
