Improve contrast in measurement decorations
The distance between objects hotkey is amazing, but very often hard to read, due to the overlap of other objects or background colors. I've attached two examples where the distance between objects is very hard to see.
Putting the measurement in a box would make sure it is always easy to read
On dark backgrounds its very hard to see the distance measurement numbers between objects. I suggest to put some high contrast background behind the numbers so they are more visible.
My dumb solution is illustrated here, I decrease the opacity of the dark object so I can see the numbers. :)))
It's a bad user experience...

I agree, this is often an issue for me, as well. Another possible solution, maybe in addition to putting the measurement in a white box, would be to allow the user to choose the color for the measurement decorations in Preferences (once Preferences is enabled), similar to how you can choose guide colors in Illustrator.

Agree, especially as a colorblind designer :) I love your fix.
