   - added Write to User Defined Properties. Works this way:

1) click over the selected measurement with middle mouse button to add the text in the edit full info textbox in the User Defined Properties. The user can enter custom text if he wants.

2) click over the selected measurement with Ctrl+MMB to add the text in the Custom notes textbox and the text in the Full Info textbox.

- fixed the bug that erases all measurements when you press LiveMeasure button when there is already one opened.

miauu's Live Measure Pro version 1.8

miauu's Live Measure Pro version 1.8 is available.

Changelog:
- Added:
- Measure the area and volume as mm2, cm2, m2 or mm3, cm3, m3. Measure the total area of the selected object in object level. To do it press the Length/Area button with Middle mouse button.

- Fixed:
- when the group is selected and the Size is measured the script will measure the size of the whole group. To measure the size of the objects - open the group and select the desired object. If the open group is selected the script will measure its size.
When the group is selected and the Volume is measured the script will measure the volume of each object individually, so be careful when the group contains hundreds of objects.

First at all I want to thank

First at all I want to thank you for such a great tool.

A few suggestions:

- I think would be convenient to have opportunity to change area and volume units independently of the Display units. So you can work in mm and control area in m2 (e.g. 13.123 m2 instead of 13123000.000 mm2)

- There is no ability to measure area on object level, only on sub-object. What involves additional actions to measure some area, especially on standard geometry.

This is not the purpose of the script. Showing name of the objects is a very simple taks and there is a script here that you can use.
