Allow measure tool to measure items outside a group without being in that group
Right now I have a bunch of objects grouped together so I can move them all around and resize them responsively. But when I want to measure the distance between something outside that group with something inside that group it only gives me the measurement from the perimeter of the group. It would be nice if measurements ignored groups. I find myself having to move stuff in and out of said group to make measurements.

Sometimes when setting up a repeat grid, the boundary doesn't align with the edges of the objects within the repeat grid. This creates two different measurements of distance: one to the boundary of the Repeat Grid, and one to the actual objects within the grid. I'm assuming that due to how Repeat Grids are coded, that it might be difficult to have the boundary always correspond to the edge of the contents within the Repeat Grid, so I think having distance measurements prioritize the actual contents and/or completely ignore the Repeat Grid boundary would be a nice feature.
