Well that explains it then, thanks for the reply. I don`t think it`s really worth it to pursue further then, I wrongly assumed it was going to be quite straightforward since doing this from the user interface, it`s literally 2 clicks. Anyway, thanks again.
So I`ve been trying to make a small macro to switch on and off the Measure & Construct tool so I can assign it to a keyboard shortcut, and switch it on and off (basically you do this by ticking and unticking the "Show" checkbox in the tools attributes). I`ve tried to figure this out for countless hours and I just can`t seem to get anywhere, I think it`s supposed to be a IF-ELSE type script, but it`s really out of my brain capacity. If anyone could help out I`d really appreciate it
