area of multiple shapes

In V8i you could use the group hole tool to select multiple shapes (*** Ctrl  held down) and then get the combined area. This does not appear to work any longer in Connect U10. Is there another method for doing this?

  • Was a suitable answer ever provided for this? As stated by the original author, you were able to simply measure the cumulative area of independent shapes by suing the group hole tool in V8i. You could then create an insert field and have an immediate read out of the total area of a series of shapes.

    This was incredibly important for generating totals from plan layouts or measuring facade areas etc. I am now trying to do this in Connect and struggling.

    Any help on this would be much appreciated.

    I may have mentioned AreaAnnotator earlier, but it's great for harvesting area information and presenting it in an Excel-compatible worksheet.  Note that it provide aggregate data (count, total area, total perimeter).  You can sort and filter using Item Type properties.
