Get total areas and lenght from hatches and polylines

Get total areas and lenght from hatches and polylines

Would be great if there were an easy way to get the total area for multiple selected hatches. The same way, the lenght, for polylines (and lines, arcs ...). Selecting several polylines, and asking for the total lenght in a simple and direct way. I know there are ways to do it, at least for polylines, but they are not the easiast or the most direct way.

You need a LISP for polylines, as far as I know, but the properties palette shows the cumulative area of all selected hatches.

What jacob says is true. The only time you don't get the area of hatches is if the hatch crosses itself. Otherwise in properties palette it does show the cumulative area of all selected hatches.

 

Here's a good site for lots of free lisps and the link I'm giving you brings you directly to the page for the total length / total area section.

Thank you for the solution for the hatches! But for the polylines there isn't a similar way to do it, does it? I always use something similar to the options you gave me.
