I am trying to use the new feature in Blender 2.5 (2.58.1 r38122) that reports Face Area and Edge Length.
As an example to my problem, I made a 8mx8mx1m box. The area of the face that is 8mx8m should be 64m^2. The edge length should be 8m.
The values that show up on the Numerics (under mesh display) for the edge lengths are 8.596m and the face area is 73.889m.
It seems to me that the numerics are not being updated after the object is modified via the dimensions transforms. Anyone else experience this? Any work-a-rounds?
