Let's say I am in plan sketching phase and have a non-rectangular shape and I want to know its area just to relate it to area allowed in building standards?

If you havent found a solution yet...., Try the following. Use the floor tool to trace the outline of your plan. click finish. right click on the properties button of the floor and it should list the AREA, PERIMETER and VOLUME. Good luck!

If this applies to AutoCad, my best advice is to trace the room with a polyline. Then left click on the polyline,right click click --then properties and look for "area". Hope this works out for you.

A filled region can solve that too + its filled. Duh. Check the area in properties too.

What my old firm put together was a few different masses with labels...they would then place them and pretty much do a bubble diagram with it, and the masses allow you to calculate the areas as well.  Might be something to consider...
