Hello,

I'm working in laser cut and very often I need to know how long is the path I'm going to print with the machine. It is very useful to know the length (and the area) of each path directly while you're designing in Illustrator.

How I could get this informations in Illustrator CS6?

Thanks everybody

Michele

I can try making that request ...yet again. I think that one (along with some other requests regarding type and object alignment) is falling on deaf ears.

I made the request numerous times in the old Illustrator feature request forum that was shut down. I had some other detailed/illustrated requests that were lost there. I just re-posted the path area request in the new Illustrator feature request forum, under the User Interface category.
