I'm using Measure Tool Plugin a lot so I decided to add some improvements to it.
First feature was making adding points to it much easier (now it's very uncomfortable). I decided, that the easiest way will be using ctrl+mouse left click, just as in very old bug https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=232098. I made that shortcut available only after first measure point was added.
Second feature is saving/loading (as in even older bug https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=237856). I made it to use kml file with GeoDataLineString (only such kmls are loaded) and it works. The only problem is I don't know where to place interface for that feature. For now on I made it as pluginAction so it appears under View menu and as toolbarAction so it appears in toolbar in marble-qt (when enabled) but I don't think it's the best place for that. What's your opinion about that?
I also have a question about what is the way to submit patches to Marble?
