Bug Description

I find that way New measurement tool represents on-screen informations is more useful then current snapping ones. It would be very nice to have that semi-transparent rectangles surround textual snapping information. Preferably even differently colored rectangles for different snapping targets.

Implemented in r10816:
1) Fix CanvasText alignment bugs caused by static variables, uninitialized variables, and variable border width
2) Snap tooltips no longer overlap with measure tool tooltips, and now have a background color (similar to the measure tool)
