Hi all,

I was just wondering how to insert or create a scale showing area instead of linear distance within a map layout. I wasn't immediately able to find any guidance online, mainly just because the search results are cluttered with either how to insert a normal scale bar, or how to calculate area, neither of which I need assistance with.


I've inserted a picture of what I'm referring to, just to make sure there's no confusion.

Thanks for your assistance, I appreciate it greatly!
