Q - question

Quick area label by clicking inside boundaries.

A - answer Using the BParea utility use can quickly create an area label (acreage). Download the BParea add-on tool from Download, load the VLX file with APPLOAD and run the BPAREA command.

Click inside the individual area boundaries and specify (the second click) the label position. The tool creates a dimension (leader) with an area label. You can specify a prefix, suffix, number of displayed decimal places and a conversion factor for the calculated value. See the Readme for parameters.
