"Room" shape not changing sq ft calculation

Copper Contributor

I use Visio 13 for layouts.  To calculate the sq ft of a layout, I would use the "Room" shape.  It used to auto calculate the sq ft whenever I would change the shape of the "room'.  It stopped doing this and now, no matter how big or small I make the "room", the display stays at "100 sq ft".  How do I make this work again?


I know there are other ways to determine the sq ft but for my purpose, this was the easiest.
