I really like having the ability to calculate square footage easily in DWF
Composer v2.0. I was wondering if I could get the same functionality in
Another new option not mentioned that I like when it applies - if you list the properties of a hatch - its area is listed.
So if you use pick points to temperarily hatch an space you can do so to get the area.. In conjunction with the new ability to trim or even add to a hatched area - it is easy to make quick changes to the hatch and get updated area calcs from it.
Now - if we could get a dynamic block to associate with a hatched area or polyline it could associatively report area - archt used to have this feature.... anyone know of an option for this?
