Ilse,

you can put the result of the last area calculation into a text object
or block attribute using a macro and the AREA variable. But you cannot
link the two so that the number updates when the area changes. This
would be quite difficult to program even in full AutoCAD.

Mr Rudolph,

How can I put area in a block attribute?
