Tip 1 - If you need to bring the contents of a drawing into a graphics program (like Corel® Paint Shop Pro) and you need the image to be scalable, use the Print command to create an SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics). Since SVG files are XML-based, many graphics programs support this format.

Tip 2 - You can use the GetArea for perimeter information, too. If you have several closed polygonal shapes, and you need the combined length of the permiters, use GetArea. Type GETAREA > A > select shapes > press Enter. If you can’t see the results in the Command window, press F2 to launch the text screen.
