I am working on 5 deeds created in Anson County, NC in 1762 that use Chains
as the measurement. They all plat about 4 times the size they should be (in
acreage) even though the numbers are all entered correctly and the shape of
the land is correct. I have tried converting the chains to poles and/or feet
but they still come out the same way. One particular deed of my family's
land should have 293 acres but instead it has over 1,000 acres. Ironically
the shape is the exact way it should be but it just seems to be on a
different "Scale". What am I doing wrong?
Also, the area button on my program has suddenly become inactive and does
nothing when I click on it. The corners and lines button work fine. I have
looked in the options section but can't find how to fix it. Help please!
