Short description of error
The error occurs when scaling down an object using dimensions. Even though you'll change the x value to 1.07m, the edge will still show as 2m.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Create a cube
  2. Scale down
  3. Check length under edge info
  4. Shows 2m even though the object has been scaled down.

I'd like to take a look at this! The bug happens on my end.

You need to apply scale to actually scale the mesh.

Hmm, thanks for the suggestion, I will try that!

Looking into this, I don't believe it is a bug, the issue is that you are setting Transform setting to Local instead of Global. Look at the image below if you set it to Global the edge values change:

So, it is my personal recommendation that this is not a bug as it is behaving as it ought to when it set to Local vs Global.

It worked! Sorry, user error. Thanks for your help!
