Dimension and ShowHint Improvements

Until now, the dimension tool was used only to show what the length of a line or the radius of a circle was. The new version of the tool automatically adds a constraint to the dimensioned shape. The Measure tool will be modified to be used when no constraint is needed. Here is a demo of the Dimension tool used on a line:

Another improvement is for the Hints. They are shown on the bottom of the window, under the command window, and during Sketch editing give hints as to what the next step is. I have fixed a layout bug that caused them to be displayed wrongly, improved the text for some of the tools and added new hints for tools that had none.
