Sometimes it is useful to keep locked in the Layout window a piece of information related to the area and perimeter of the current room.
You should already know that there is a command in the Tools section of the Ribbon, called Floor area, that gives you this information: until version 2016, indeed, this was a read-only information. Starting from version 2017 you can decide to keep this information constantly visible in the Layout window; anytime you change the architecture of the room the automatic text will change (provided that you do not alter its structure, which refers to the name of the room).
You can move the text in any position you want, and also its color and font.
Note: in order to keep the automatic update of the Area and Perimeter information, the text structure needs to remain the same. Room name must be at the top, together with the text Area and/or Perimeter in the following lines. If you need to rename the room, do as follows: delete the old automatic text, rename the room, then run again the command Floor area.
