Summary0002547: FEM, GUI, all TaskPanels, input from spreadsheet-Data in expressions
DescriptionAll values dialogs in the FEM WB do not use input from spreadsheet-Data. The part-design WB does accept them and it would be great if FEM would do also. For instance it would help if in the FEM-mesh dialog one could specify a max. size value derived form a spreadsheet value used in part design.

> It's there in 0.17
@sgrogan what do you mean ?

I meant the feature exists in 0.17. But re-reading more carefully it exists in the property editor not the creation dialog. So the feature request stands. The work around is to create the feature and then edit the numerical property from the data tab. I think it should be possible to do directly from python but I didn't test.

Is there a reason why my screenshot was deleted?

@HoWil yes, because it wasn't good enough... j/k
Real reason: recently when we restored the tracker from backup many attachments didn't make it.

It would be nice to have. But in my ToDo this is for sure some piece away from the beginning.
