Very nice. What about being able to choose the font, and have a background coloured box? Having the option to put this in a panel would be very cool too.

Choosing the font is not possible as drawing on the screen has to be made using vectors.
I had to make my own letters and my own code to draw them.

As for a separate panel, it may be possible, yes.
You mean a dockable panel that you can place in your layout?

That is unfortunate. I thought perhaps to match the HUD font would be nice.

Yes, exactly.

Really nice tool, very useful, I guess the SDK doesn´t allow to draw in the viewport with Add to HUD command?
I would like to suggest to make the tag as a plugin object as well so we have only one per scene and not per object (imagine dealing with hundreds of objects) where the plugin object display the info of the selected object only and the tags could override this plugin object if you have the need of a specific object info to show in the viewport.

Cheers
Juan

Hello Rui,

Thank you for sharing this plugin idea. I think the readout of length in terms of the spline segments is valuable. The other information seems to be available using the HUD if I remember correctly? (# points selected, etc.)
