It would be very useful to be able to know the length of a path/curve. This could be provided in the Properties/Info for a selected path. By default, I suppose the units would have to either be in px or the default document units. Another post from 7 years ago suggested the Ruler tool to be expanded to optionally draw curves rather than straight lines, and that would be great. But if only provided in the Properties panel, it would be cool if the distance reflected a calibrated unit measure as can be done for the Ruler tool via Image > Analysis > Set Measurement Scale.

I'm drawing paths over topographic maps, for example a custom jogging trail, and would like to know the distance my path implies.
