Description

Currently, it seems that the measure tool only works for an existing feature if that feature is retraced on the fly. It would save a huge amount of work with complex features if it would measure the currently selected feature; even better if it could also sum the measure of all features in a layer. (If it already does this, a reply to
http://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/54663/qgis-1-8-0-mac-where-is-measure-window-or-measure-area-symbol
would be most appreciated.)
