Win32 and 64, English

Calculate area from hatch objects. Show wrong hatches with area zero. Create dynamic values of all selected hatches by Layer or Patternname.

General Usage Instructions

1) Type in command: DHA

-> Calculate area from hatch, sort by <L>ayername or [H]atchname?

2) Choose whether you want to calculate total area from hatch by layer (there, they are set) or by Hatchname

-> Select all hatches you want calculate

3) Pick a position for text field result: Sometimes some hatches have to be zero value in the area - in this case if an error-message (see screenshot) occurs and it will show which hatch is wrong (by line)

Cool thing is: you can change hatches which maybe bigger or smaller, always your MTEXTs are up-to-date.

In the end, all the hatches are associated with an area text and the ‘total area’ of all hatches is known.
