Data tags, area in sq. ft.

Recommended Posts

It’s been a long time but the problem remains the same. When I use data tags for landscape areas, I can’t seem to figure out how to make it limit the square footage to whole numbers.  I can’t imagine anyone would want the decimal places out six places as the is seemingly the default. The problem does not occur when using data tags with hardscapes.  Tech support says it's a bug but has yet to provide a fix or workaround.  Anyone else running into this issue or have a fix for it?  See below image. Thanks

Hello @Lisar,


I suppose that you are using the formula that gets the Landscape Area's area parameter in the Data Tag? If so, this is happening because this formula is displaying what is written in this parameter and it cannot be modified.

However, you could use the Object Function - Area of the Data Tag, that will let you select the units in which the area is displayed and the precision. I think that this should get the job done for you.


Let me know if you need any help with that.


Best Regards,

Nikolay Zhelyazkov

Thank you for your input.  I would appreciate more specifics.  The area code (#area#) under object function and parameter functions appears the same.  Could you provide more specifics.  Here is the default tag field information:
