allow manual setting of leg length
For courses other than sprint, length measurement is along the shortest passable route (measuring around lakes, buildings, etc.), and it is often not proper to bend the connecting line around such objects (because there is a left/right route choice around them). It would be nice to be able to click on the length and manually edit it. I guess it would make sense for it to revert if the course were edited, though.

Would be nice to be able to measure around a lake or something, without creating extra controls and without getting that line on the final map

In 2.5.0 you can customize the length of the whole course in Course/Properties. Slightly different than this suggestion, but I though I would mention it.

I would like to be able to enter the distance (and climb!) of the optimal route on each leg. Also, if I set distance or climb on a leg, then move the control at either end, I would like to be prompted to update the distance and climb.
