Utility obtains the area of a closed object (polyline) and outputs the text at a desired location.

Area Output (Tip #2139) from James J. Olszewski is a simple function that gets the area of a closed object (polyline) and outputs the text at a desired location. Load the LISP code and type AREAO to run the function inside AutoCAD. It requests an object, then a point for the area text to be generated using the current system defaults. This code is simple, sweet and gets the job done -- that is what LISP is all about!

Thanks for the lisp. Very helpful. But is there a way to change to square feet as the output? Square inches isn't very helpful in architectural drawings. Thanks!
