Bug report #12912

Switching line/area measure do not remove lines/areas on close

If I measure a line, and then without closing the dialogue, switch to measure an area (or vice versa) the dialogue changes. When I close the new dialogue, the first line remains and can not be removed unless I first reopen line measurement, and then close that dialogue.

When measuring angles, the lines (angle lines) disappear when I select line- or area measurement, as it should.

This is the same in 2.8.2 as it is in Master.

It's probably not a "bug", but I find it a little annoying, now when it occurred to me.

Suggest solving it by deleting lines/areas when the dialogue closes either by the button or by other dialogues opening (compare angle measurement).
