I am having a problem with the zone tool, after I use it with Inner Edge lets say to give me the m2 of the bedroom, after that when I make changes to try to circle around something with the same zone stamp the number of the measurement doesn't change. 

Any idea where is the problem?


I will shot it with 2 screenshots compered as the number doesn't change.


Menu Bar > Design > Update Zones

I know that feature but in previous projects where the problem i have now was normal and wasn’t like that.

thanks though!

If you use Polyline/Manual Zone boundary, then the area information updates "on the fly". If you use inner edge then you need to use the "Update Zones". Inner edge relies on a boundary that is not the zone itself...which means that if you start pulling the corners then it cannot measure as it has no connection to the boundary.
