Tips and Tricks • Delpak Zadeh • 7 April 2021
Fills have the ability to display Area. So if you place a fill on top of the slab, the fill area will give you the slab area.
Check the Show Area Text checkbox in the Fill Settings Dialog or the Fill Info Box.
Then, using the Magic Wand, click the outline of the Slab to create the Fill, then place the Area Text of the Fill. Since the Slab has a hole, select the placed Fill and place a corresponding hole in the Fill using the Magic Wand method.
