Description

I have problem that the measure tool markers are poorly visible. As attached picture shows it is almost impossible to find the starting point of the line (and check you chose the right point) and in some cases also the line.

Would it be possible to make the line thicker and in some brighter color? It would help much.

thanks

PS: the same in Windows and Linux OS

I think this would be a good addition, I often find myself in the same position, also it would be nice if once can see if it's snapping to something or not

The attached images show that the marker for the last point of feature is not draw and the measure tool can be fooled to draw two points for the starting point of a feature.
Code to correct this issue is provided.
