Add area measurements to polygons without units

I'd like to be able to add area measurements to polygons without units. For example, when I add measurements to polygons, GM generates area measurement field with (nnn.n acres) instead of (nnn.n). I'd like the to have the option of adding measurements as a number instead of text to allow measurement based work. Perhaps I'm missing a function and I apologize if that's the case. Thanks for your time.

    If you right-click in the Measure Tool there is an option named 'Append Unit Names..." that you can uncheck. Then when you add measure attributes they won't have units appended to them.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
