Auto Area Callout

Recommended Posts

Working with a macbook pro, OS 11.2 VW2020


In the Sketchup app, the text of a callout box will automatically give the square footage (square meters) of the surface that it is touching. Can VW do something similar by which the callout tool can be set to automatically display the area of the surface it is pointed toward?

In vectorworks you would use a data tag for this rather than the call out tool.


The data tag tool is on the dims/notes palette. There are a bunch of default tags in the vw libraries. If there is not one you can use you can always customise one to do what you want.


Data tags are fully customisable in respect  to their geometry / layout but also in respect to what information you want it to provide from an object.
