How to calculate Square Miles contained in an area in Microsoft Streets and Trips?

I need to calculate the Square Miles contained in an area. Is there a way to calculate Square Miles within a drawed object?

Yes, but it requires a little math. There is no automatic calculation but that would be a nice feature for Microsoft to add.

Let's say the area in question is a regular rectangle. Use the Measuring Tool (ctrl-E) to measure the long side, then the short side, then multiply the two measurements: that will produce the area. Or, if the area is a true circle measure the radius as above, square it and multiply by that by pi (22/7). You can use the circle drawing tool which displays the radius automatically as you create the circle.

Of course, it is a bit more complicated if the shape of the area is not one of the above.
