Thanks for picking up the question ThomThom
I'm developing a measuring tool and part of the functionality lies on the capability of the tool to make a quick measurement no matter what context you are into.
Currently I'm getting the information via pickpoint but I'm having hard time trying to get rid of the interferencing and also confuses me a lot when the cursor is over a face but one or more edges are just behind that face because my draw method to highlight either the face or the edge goes crazy when underneath the cursor are to much geometry happening. I wanted to implement a method using pickhelper but the not picking outside active context thing stopped me.
The tool angleinspector from fredo marvelously does exactly what I want to achieve and I'm trying to mimic that functionality but without success.viewtopic.php?f=180&t=67058
Here you can see a gif describing my problem.
