    Not sure how this happened but the Hammer Unit measurement text that used to appear when I dragged a block over a distance has disappeared; thus whenever I drag out something now it's incredibly painful and tedious since I can't tell how large it is without counting the individual grid spaces inbetween.

    Does anyone know how to turn this back on and what caused it in the first place? Any help would be incredibly appreciated!

    It's in the Map menu, Show Grid. You must have hit Shift+R at some point.

    Sorta kinda worked. I did that and the grid disappeared (and then I did it again and it reappeared) and then I relaunched; the measurement numbers now display once again. So thanks, I appreciate it!

    I think the problem was that you had accidently made a selection somewhere on the 2D view. You might want to try pressing enter (and then reselecting the object you wanted to move/stretch) next time this happens, instead of restarting Hammer
