Bug Description

If I select the measure tool and let's say I have "mm" when the tool was activated - it will display measured distances in mm. Now if I change the units to inches (click on the unit button in the left panel) without deactivating the measure tool, the tool will continue to display distances in mm. To change to displaying distances in the units selected you need to click the measure tool icon again, even though it is already activated. Seems to be the same behavior across all the application which use the measure tool.
