Some Notes:

  1. This script aims to measure the length of paths created in Affinity Designer. It aims to process lines and Bezier cubic curves.
  2. Most paths will just rely on these two components. The script currently will not process arcs or quadratic Bezier curves.
  3. The script will process each segment of the path separately. A segment is the path lying between two nodes. It also gives the total length of the path.
