CLF OnScreen Display

This script shows the cursor location and screen position, and the name of the selected component.  If no component is selected, it names what is selected (group, face, edge, 3d polyline, etc)

Activate the tool from Plugins> OnScreen Display.  Move the cursor.  Left click and hold the mouse to get the OnScreen Display.  If you've selected a component, it will show the Instance name (I usually leave that blank, so don't be surprised if that is blank) and the Definition name.  The definition is what you normally see in the component browser.

Thanks Chris
This plugin would come in very handy..... I use sketchup for checking construction shop detailing produced from survey information. Being able to hold the cursor over a point on a beam or column to confirm its position and particular the 'Z' axes to confirm its height would be very useful
