Exclamation Visio Pro 2016: Measuring the total length of a series of interconnected lines

I've got a series of two-dimensional line segments which are interconnected to eachother (see the red line in the attached sample). In the shape sheet I can find the total width and height of the summary shape but I'd like to know the total length of that summary shape. Is there any way to achieve this?


I need to confess that I'm not a VBA-programmer

Maybe in my post I wasn't clear enough on what I'm actually after. Therefore I send you an update together with an amended attachment. The shape information window tells me about width (0.152) and height (0,048) of the shape, but how can I get Visio telling me the length of the red line? Thanks to you experts for any advice, even if it sounds like "...not possible"

If the red line is a series of interconnected lines, have you tried to "group" all of the lines and then checked the length? I am shooting from the hip (guessing) on this one.

@JimP
Thanks, but that was also my first idea.
But that didn't work. As I found out by that time, neither the shapesheet nor the "Position & Size" sheet in Visio shows the real overall length of a line if it's not just a straight one, but for instance a freehand line.
