How come the measure tool does not snap to points?
Without snapping, measuring between points is not very accurate.
It would be nice to be able to measure actual lengths of curves or sections of paths. It would make it easier to create diagrams with dimensions.
You can measure an angle to two degrees of accuracy by drawing a line segment then using the rotate tool to rotate the line. When you rotate the line, the angle of rotation is displayed next to the cursor. Turn on smart guides to make the line and pivot point snap to the elements you're measuring.

I also would like the the measure tool to snap to points. otherwise what good is it?
Big vote on this!
It seems counter intuitive not to snap with the ruler. Especially when all tools do.
In the mean time, Pen tool in CC17 does indicate distance with 0.01 accuracy, and snaps...
Just got to CTRL+Z afterwards to clean up (or go Clean up in the end with object>path>cleanup)

Users resort to creating and deleting temporary rectangles, as these at least snap to points. Daft, in the extreme.
