Can a Zone show both m2 and ft2?

KenMcN

We need to provide floor plans showing areas in both square meters and square feet, does anyone know if it is possible to customise a zone stamp to do this?

If there is a way to take the measured area in m2 and multiply it by 10.764 then display that (adding "sq ft" to the end), that would be fine, but I can't find a way to multiply an area within Archicad.

All help gratefully received,
Kenny

The attatched works for property calculations - you should be able to steal the script and add it to any stamp you prefer to use.

Have a look at this zone object, Randy. You can try the demo and see if it works for you.

Visap that one looks a bit more sophisticated than mine and would work
for the zones that KenMcN requires
Mine has the code that could be made into a stamp that would satisfy KenMcN
if he wanted to create his own. In either case the answer to the subject
is yes.

No worries Randy. I too made a mistake by addressing that post to you instead of Ken.
