QuickAreas is a handy add-in for Autodesk® AutoCAD® that retrieves the area property of multiple polylines and inserts a label with its associated area value.

General Usage Instructions

Using QuickAreas is pretty simple. First, the user must indicate the drawing units and the polygon units. Next, the user has to select the text height. If this is not selected, the program will insert texts with a height of 2 units. The final step is to click on the "Insert Texts" button and select the polylines whose areas are desired to be retrieved. The program will convert the areas from the drawing units to the polygon units and will insert a text at the centroid of each polyline with the corresponding area value. 

The app allows the user to automatically enumerate the polygons whose areas will be retrieved. In the main interface, the user must check the "Enumerate Polygons" option and indicate the starting number. The program will enumerate the polygons based on the order of selection. If all the polylines are selected at the same time, the program will enumerate them based on the order of creation.

To export the list of areas to Microsoft Excel, the user must check the "Export to Excel" option before clicking the "Insert Texts" button. After selecting the polylines, the program will ask the user to indicate the folder where the Excel file will be saved.
