Default Area calculation tool?

Is there a way to calculate an area of an enclosed, irregular room?


-By enclosed I mean that there are solid line boundaries around the periphery of the room
-By irregular I mean that a room's walls are not right angles and contain curves

The "Room Measure" tool is helpful, but it can only be used to measure right-angled rooms/shapes.

(Using Visio 2016 Pro)

I was not going to respond to this topic because I have no experience beyond version 2010. Having said that, 2010 did not have an "area calculation" option. When I needed that data in Visio, I had to use AutoCAD to calculate the area and transcribe into Visio. So, unless Visio has updated this particular topic, I think you may be out of luck.

However, hopefully another poster may provide more positive information.
