Is there any way of seeing the horizontal/vertical properties of an object?

This question has been posed before, but there have been no real solutions.
I make use of many of the Snagit objects, (number bubbles especially), as do other editors on my team.
The objects change shape over time, as an object is poked or prodded, in very small increments. At some point over the weeks, a number bubble on one persons output looks nothing like the same bubble on some one else output.
This results in some redo's, as it is unacceptable have such differences within the manuals we are creating. We produce hundred of training manuals, and this is problem we really do want to go away.
Having a re-sizing tool, that shows horiz/vert. dimensions would be great; being able to reset dimensions to a library standard would be better.
Is there anything I can do, or is TechSmith working on future enhancements to resolve this issue?

Thanks for such a great product btw. I've been using it for several years now on both Macs and Windows and love it.

There is no immediate plan for this feature, but if others have a similar need please hit the "Me Too" button so we can gauge the level of interest.

Have you considered creating  some of these objects on a transparent background and saving them as a PNG.
Then you could distribute them to everyone as stamps? That way everyone would be pasting in the exact same thing.
