Hi Robert,

Not sure if you have been asked this one. Is it possible to include a distance measurement when using the circle selection tool in the BY Shape function? We have staff that want to select by circle but have a radius value. If the tool could dynamically display the distance as the user drags out the radius.

cheers

Rod,

   This has never been considered. Normally you would add a point and buffer by a known distance.

Thanks Robert. Yes I agree that is the preferred option, but I have found a lot of non GIS users find this hard to do and that's what gave me the idea. Just trying to keep it simply for some users and keep them interested in using the spatial environment. So if you can find time and its not difficult to implement it would be useful.

cheers
