Looking for a tool what allow me:

  • draw shapes with bezier lines
  • the inspector shows the length of the line

For example OmniGraffle allows draw a shape with bezier lines, but it doesn't show the length of the line e.g. for the following image omnigraffle show shows only the width and height of the bounding box.

enter image description here

I need the length of the line.

Any such tool?

Just found:

The Inkscape could measure the path length:

  • select the path
  • click Extension -> Visualise path -> Measure path

It will attach the length of the path into image. Not the native OS X app (needs X.org), but works OK, and it is free.
