Good afternoon team,

Is there a way of showing the X and Y dimensions of a zone? I cant seem to use associative text label in plan view and the zone stamp tool doesn't have this option. AC22

Do you know of a way of doing this?

The problem is zones are not always rectangular - can be any shape and any rotation.
Take for example the other bedroom in your image.
Does the zone include the robe as well, or just the recess to the main door so it is no longer rectangular?
Does the length of the room include the robe or not?

Personally I have a room dimension object that I can stretch to suit the size of the room that i want to measure.
It is not automatic (in that you have to stretch it yourself) but it then shows the exact dimensions I want.

Hi everyone - here is something that I've created and I am still using it.

It doesn't have a sound explanation - but I am working on it and I want to publish it online.
