How to hide unit from area?

Anonymous

Hello. I need to add area text to the fills or zones, but without m² or any other units, I need only numeric value. Is this possible?
Tanks.

I think in case of Fill, the m2 will always be displayed.
In case of Zonesyou could probably modify the Zone Stamp's GDL Script to not display the "m2" portion of the Area Text.

Thank you for answer.
OK, I have edited 2D script and changed "bShowUnit = 1", to "bShowUnit = 0". This works!
Now, can I add custom text after measured value?

Of course, if you know GDL you should be able to.
There are TEXT2 commands in either the Maste Scriptor the 2D Script that I think put together the area text out of the area number text and the unit text. You just have to add to it your own text.You may even add a parameter thsat control whether that appears or not, just like this one you edited.

Unfortunately I don't know GDL.

I will try to modify the script, but not sure that I will succeed.
