BUG - Measured Net Area not updates when you split zone

Hi Beta Testers,

 

Measured Net Area in custom zone label not updates when you split zone. Haven't checked other measurement labels or how it works in schedules, but it could be bugs related to this in other places as well 😉

BUG behaviour shown in video link below (AC26 INT build 5002):

The 'Update Zones' command in the Design menu works.

Why then "Measured Area" is updated automatically while "Measured Net Area" needs manual intervention ?

That is a good question and one that I can't think of an obvious answer for.

I just know that the update zone tool fixes it without you having to manually adjust the zone size.

Currently I'm going through all zone labels in my big project and changing them from "Net Measured Area" to "Measured Area" and it looks like some of zones had wrong zone area measurements for long time. ~1000 zones "Text/Autotext" labels to update. If you don't stretch or update zone then you will have this issue lurking in project 😕
