|Summary||0003272: Failed to parse expression occurs when referencing an alias in an external spreadsheet document|
OS: Ubuntu 17.04
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.17.12643 (Git)
Build type: None
Python version: 2.7.13
Qt version: 4.8.7
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.1.0
Locale: English/UnitedStates (en_US)
By "external" I mean a spreadsheet that is not a part of the FreeCAD document I am working on. I am choosing to use a separate master spreadsheet because I want that central spreadsheet to control dimensions in constraints used in sketches in multiple FreeCAD documents in the current working directory, such that when I update the values in the "master spreadsheet", the objects in the dependent FreeCAD documents are updated (well, right now they are not updated automatically, and I have to press a button in Assembly2, but that is off-topic from this bug).
After working around the bug in 0003271 by manually opening the external spreadsheet file, the fx button does seem to show that it recognizes the syntax and even shows the value, but when I click ok to use that value, I get a "Failed to parse expression" error.
Use the same attachments as in 0003271
The GIF in 0003271 also shows this problem.
