Draft Polar link array and expressions

Post by chrisb » Sun Mar 29, 2020 7:14 pm

I have created a polar array using the new GUI.
I made the following observations:
- the fields are not expression aware
- moving the mouse to the panel changes the origin - a nuisance, which has to be reset
- Now comes the weird thing: I set an expression in the properties. It shows correctly during input ...

... but when I confirm the wrong result is shown:

The fields where? In the task panel or the property editor?

Which panel? Do you mean the 3D view, the task panel or the property editor?

The "Count" property is not a real property of the array. It is something displayed by App Link. The real property to control the number of elements is called "Number Polar".
