    Option 1. Polyline edit (PE)-> Join -> Select all poly lines -> Close
    Option 2. Fillet -> Radius 0,0 -> Multiple -> Click the ends of all the polylines to join them together then either polyline edit -> close or open the properties panel and select close.

    To measure area & perimeter either List (LI) and select the poly line then you can cut and paste the answers into another programme or you can select the line and it will all appear in the properties panel. GTG manager behind me ;P

    Also, the BOUNDARY command works quite well.
    You might be an engineer, if you tell people that time travel does not exist..... and then 5 minutes later explain how you would build a time machine

    Engineers aren't boring people, we just get excited over boring things.

    MPEDIT works if you have Express Tools. I believe a Hatch will create it's own boundary separate from the lines.
