I have some files that this works as designed and others where it does not. The files seem to have the same units, but one file shows Acres as a possible unit while the other only shows square feet. What is up with that?
This file will not allow Acres:
This file will. Their working units are identical. Why is this happening differently in two seemingly similar files?

1st file has a GCS, second does not. One of a very few things that now work in Connect. Until recently I was using a user command to do that in v8i.
Apologies for the previous incorrect answer, don't know what I was thinking. It's the Geographic Coordinate System.

I just tried removing and adding a GCS to each file and it did not have any effect. I did not restart between files, but I did open one and then the other between measure area commands.
They are retaining the measure capability that they originally demonstrated.
I am using Power InRoads and this presents itself in both Ss2 and Ss4 versions.
So that is one difference, it seems to be having no effect.
But, when I attach one to the other, while in the file that won't measure as Acres, I can activate the file that allows Acres and it will measure using Acres. Then, when I deactivate the reference, I can still measure Acres in the file that used to not offer Acres. But if I exit the file and re-enter the very same file, the measure settings are back to only offering Square Survey Feet.
