I prefer the current equal sign as is. The proposal suggests to me much more than the equal sign that it applies to horizontal lines. And it would be especially inappropriate for arcs.

It also works on:
Yes, and radiuses are lengths. If in the future it is able to handle more types of equality, then I think using the equals symbol is fine. But then, not now.

It remains confusing on equal arcs, because you don't select the radius, you select the arcs.

I like the third version from vocx. Yes, the equality isn't only for length, but it gives the user a second difference to the parallel icon and my first association of vocx icon goes more in an equality direction than the old icon.

Or maybe somebody can create a survey for the different icon versions.

Would such change do? That is by using the most universal signs out there, for equal and parallel?
