4. Select the Type of area you want to create.
5. Define a height for the area. You cannot set X and Y dimensions using this option.
6. Select other options, as needed, displayed in the Area Creation dialog box. These are explained in Create Area by Size and Location.
7. Click anywhere inside the boundary. The area is displayed.
Sometimes the area will not display correctly inside the boundary - it may overlap a part of the boundary or not align with a portion correctly. In such cases delete the area and click again at a location that is different from the last location you clicked at. It may take two or three tries before you get the correct display.
