conditional expression in spreadsheet

Probably something stupid, but I can't get the following to work as an expression in a spreadsheet (Mdl, NumWells_A,B are cell aliases): = (Mdl == 4) ? NumWells_A : NumWells_B Do relationals not work in spreadsheets in v 0.18? If not, do they work in 0.19? OS: FreeBSD 11.3-RELEASE-p12 Word size of O...

Re: Fill in wedge on bevel

@TheMarkster yes, that is what I want. I don't see how to do a pad in a custom direction in v 0.18; do you know if that requires v 0.19? In any case, thanks for the head-bang... it made me realize I can get what I want by sketching another triangle in the xy plane at the bottom and lofting it throug...

Re: Spreadsheet -- Is there a way to deactivate graphic recompute?

The losing-focus idea seems like a good approach, although you would want that to be the "freecad focus" as opposed to the actual keyboard focus. One often switches apps (e.g. to read mail) and then back. Treating only aliased cells wouldn't really solve the problem. It would help, but I often chang...

Re: Spreadsheet -- Is there a way to deactivate graphic recompute?

I need recomputes to be done within the spreadsheet, but not in the overall model. Could you give an example why? You can type your formulas, aliases, values, ... and then the single recompute will sort and update everything in one go. Working with the spreadsheet itself is fine; it's working with ...

Re: Sketcher Constraints checkbox -- What does it do?

If the solver reports an error, e.g. redundant constraints, then subsequently added constraints are not shown correctly until you remove the error. So if you have such an error and after that you add a circle, starting with autoconstraints and you make the centers coincident, they well can show dif...

Re: Spreadsheet -- Is there a way to deactivate graphic recompute?

Thanks. That works, but it's awkward because the hints for member names don't show up as you type; when you're in the formula editor you can't switch to the project with the sketch to look things up. Unfortunately, that makes it unusable (for me) in practice. OS: FreeBSD 11.3-RELEASE-p6 Word size of...

Re: Sketcher Constraints checkbox -- What does it do?

Is it possible that you used undo? I had been looking for an error and finally could reproduce it, see https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=46419. Werner has already fixed it. Please retest as soon as you get the updated version. Just saw that. I probably used undo somewhere in there. I...

Re: Spreadsheet -- Is there a way to deactivate graphic recompute?

See: https://www.forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=37060 Thanks. I didn't know about the skip recomputes option, but unfortunately it isn't helpful in this case. As pointed out in the article, I need recomputes to be done within the spreadsheet , but not in the overall model. There was a com...

Spreadsheet -- Is there a way to deactivate graphic recompute?

When manipulating expressions in a spreadsheet, each change seems cause a complete recompute of geometry in the graphics engine. Is there a way to turn this off and then back on? It can be very time-consuming when one is doing a lot of corrections / reorganization.
