    Default square feet disappeared

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Can anyone help me figure out how to get the area under geometry in properties to give me sqft? It used to give me sqin and sqft and now (in one particular drawing) it will only show up as a sqin number. It doesn't seem to matter what I measure in this drawing...including new geometry that I add to it. (I tried drawing a rectangle in this drawing to see if my new geometry would give me a sqft number)

    Thanks for any help you can provide!

    Just to eliminate the obvious, have you checked the unit type in that drawing?

    Ah yes, the obvious! Thanks CyberAngel. The units were set to decimal not architectural. It all works now!
