more resolution for the "verify tool" would be a huge time saver. the "verify tool" currently displays three digits to the right of the decimal; good enough for checking but NOT in my view for designing with precision. displaying five or six digits to the right of the decimal in the "verify tool" would eliminate the need to run a parallel spreadsheet and the associated risk of "operator error"!! I very frequently need to know the length of a collection of joined lines and arcs. it's not optics, but then again it's not carpentry............

In preferences, units displays default 3 digits, you can elevate that to 8, it applies to verify.
