Calculation of Skin/Component Area

Note: Morphs and basic non-veneer columns are an exception: skin area cannot be calculated for these elements.
In the Profile Manager (Options > Complex Profiles > Profile Manager), activate the List Component Area checkbox for each component whose area you want to list.
Click Store Profile to save changes.
Use the Base Line to calculate the component area as projected onto the flat surface represented by the line. By default, the base line is located along the longest segment of the profile.
Use the Base Circle to calculate the area as projected onto an arched component.
Note: To keep all the Base Lines visible in Profile Editor, regardless of component selection, make sure you have turned on View > On-Screen View Options > Component Area Base Line/Circle.
Activate the List Component Area checkbox.
Click Store Profile to save changes.
