Areas - Annotated Plan

2. Press APPLY or OK to generate the annotated text.
This check box allows the user to turn on or off the Areas.
Note that the Lot number and Area text is generated and inserted into the job just like any other piece of text.
It can then be edited and altered at will.
This can also be turned on/off from the ‘Annotated Plot’ tab.
Note: When the lot string is changed, the area is recomputed and the area text will be updated.
