MacOS: expressions cannot be discarded

Postby chrisb » Wed May 02, 2018 6:20 pm

Sorry for crosslinking but the original post looks like a simple help request. It turns out that expressions cannot be discarded: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=28502

In fact it seems to be a Mac specific problem perhaps a QT thing. It needs a developer to look at this.

I'll see what I can do. I don't have much spare time at the moment, so don't expect anything too soon.

It's not urgent at all. As a workaround the desired value can be entered as an expression.
