Feature request: Quick way to assign reference values.

Postby jruiz » Tue Aug 14, 2018 11:21 am

Good morning.
Wouldn't it be very useful (and very nice) that when:
1.- In the properties editor of any object,
2.- after clicking the little expression icon,
3,. one have the option of (for example) shift clicking on any property value of any other object
4.- for assigning reference values to the first object
?
Regards.

P.S.: Forgive my poor English please.

Sounds like the Excel feature for composing functions, which is indeed very comfortable.

That's the idea.
When developing a project, this feature would be very useful in combination with the use of the spreadsheet workbench, where the developer could place the variable values previous to the use of any other workbench.
