Area measurement incorrect

Slight oddity I’m seeing with areas reported by the Ruler tool. These two screenshots show two identical shapes and the areas that the ruler reports. One area is much higher than it should be. I created these shapes separately using two different methods. One is drawn with joined lines, the other as a modified rectangle. LB 1.0.04 Mac on Big Sur 11.6. I’ve attached the lbrn2 file FYI.

Areas.lbrn2 (6.8 KB)

On my windows 7 machine, the results are the same. I’ll bet this becomes a bug find.

Any thoughts on this from Lightburn staff?

Found, fixed for the next release. One of your shapes was scaled down, and the scale wasn’t being included in the area calc.


Well spotted! :slight_smile: That makes perfect sense.
