    Just moved to a new building and need to know square footage of each office.
    I can figure the square office, and odd shaped (union) offices, but the ones
    with curved outside walls have me stumped. Can anyone explain what to do?

    TIA,

    OK, Dave -

    I'm stubborn (tried to figure out what your note meant), checked the book,
    etc. I still can't figure out how to outline/select curves and angles to use
    the Space icon to give me the square footage. I don't see a Space icon that
    has curves and angles. Is there such an animal?

    TIA,

  4. Carole,

    If you have constructed a room which is bounded by the wall shapes, then the
    Space master can be dropped into the room, then select Auto Size on its
    right mouse menu, and ... voila! It expands to fill the room to the wall
    edges and displays the area.
