What's the status on this item? Has the implementation of this been road-mapped, or has the idea been discarded?

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @Henzin. :)

If it isn't on the roadmap then it hasn't been "road-mapped" ;) but I can't imagine the developers completely ruling out the addition of such a useful feature. As a Windows user, if I want to measure areas or perimeters I export to PDF and then use the measurement tools in PDF-XChange Editor.

Xara Designer displays area and perimeter for the selected object, which I find useful.

would be very nice to have!

 

I am working on floor plans as well :) just tracing the walls gives a shape of which I want the area.

not sure if it has other applications (I see why it is not a priority) 

 

Any known workarounds? 

- PDF area I will try.

- I now just make squares and calculate the surface area for each square and add them to get the area of a room.

Designer needs an Info panel. In addition to displaying the area of a closed shape (which I agree would be very useful), it could (among other things) display the length of a line as its being drawn (using the Pen tool in Line Mode—something Affinity Photo already does).

Thanks. It would be awesome. In Illustrator I used this plugin to calculate object's area http://www.telegraphics.com.au/sw/

I just discovered this too. It's a nice plugin, and free. Since it's very easy to copy and paste an object from Designer to Illustrator, it's one of the most efficient methods. The only thing you have to be careful of, is if you have a stroke on your object, it may come into Illustrator as two separate objects, and even though they're aligned, one atop the other, the Patharea Filter plugin will give you the total area of both objects if they're both selected—in other words, your result will be twice what you want. Easy to fix if you're aware of it.

Download from here. Double-click the downloaded archive, drag the 'PathArea (CS6).aip' file to Illustrator's Plug-ins folder, and launch Illustrator. The command appears under: Object > Filters > Path area.

Hi I saw it was a question from 2014. Is it already implemented? It is important to my work to have this, something similar to what we have in info box.
