Once you have measured an area using either the Rectangle or Polygon tool, simply click on the setting cog next to the measurement and toggle the slider between "Area" or "Perimeter".

The measured area will change to an outline to reflect the measured area and the "cog" will be shaded a darker blue to show a setting has been made.

Check out the short video below and I'll show you how it's done.
