Why when I show a label on measure line, begin and end poins are in other places?

please look on my examples:

1: I drew a line

2. Then I turned on Ruler mode and Label Position At Start .

or At End

Please look, where are begin/end points

3. When I turned on a Label Position At Above

now a line length is 366.97 px
But previosly length was 417,22 px

So, what is a real length of my line?

Measuring your images, Pawel, all lengths are correct. Line #4 is shorter than line #2 and #3 (look at start & end points).

Hi

Changing the label position will unavoidably change the position of the line (though the reported lengths will still be correct).

if label change the position of begin/end the line, then length will change.
So how would I know, which reported lengths will still be correct?

Hi

You should set the ruler mode and label position before drawing the line.

but it does not matter when you set the label position.
try to draw short line (10 pixels) and the label causes the value shown to be much longer (50-60 pixels).
I think, the component measures the distance between the corners of the layer (include label length) instead the begin point and the end point of the line.

I also would prefer imageEn be able to automatically position itself no matter at which point you switch the label position.

Hi

Yes, I agree. Improved line handling is on the to-do list.
