I'm working on some complex expressions to run code calculations for occupancy data and find that when I copy the expression from one property and paste it into a new property, it's linked value is lost and it just becomes a simple text.

For instance, using 'Measured Area' from a zone when chosen through the 'Parameters & Properties..." menu will add 'Measured Area' in the expression with the grey highlight similar to autotext that pulls the data from the property of the zone using the expression. However, when I copy this and paste into a new property, it comes in as plain text and I have to highlight it and choose the property from the dialogue box again.

With an expression that has several dozen properties that will need to be re-used in other expressions, it's very tedious to re-do all of these each time.
Good to hear. :)
