Calculation formula within variable input

Hey folks, first of all I love the new variable function. Within the setup of spacings I want to reference my base value (“8”) and do calculations, e.g. (spacing-base)*2". This works fine and the value is calculated properly within the input to add a new variable. But I expected not that the calculation string changes to the absolute value. With this behaviour I loose the connection/ reference to my base value and the calculation is some how obsolete.

Does anybody feel the same?
Will there be an update?




I would appretiate this feature as well!
Scaling items depending on values is one thing I’m working most of the times.

Yeah, It would be great to add calc() function to variables definitions similar to CSS including numbers, colors, and booleans

It will be great to be able to create REM.

My eCommerce prototype contains 3 prices that change based on the user’s choices: monthly price, total price and RRP. Each of these prices is set to a variable, which updates based on the interaction.

Currently to update the 3 prices each choice has to trigger 3 conditions (e.g. if user chooses option A then ‘Total price’=100, ‘Monthly price’=‘Total price’ ÷ 12 and ‘RRP’=‘Total price’ + 10.

It would save a lot of time if I could set these relations in the variables values themselves (e.g. ‘Monthly price’=Total price ÷ 12 and ‘RRP’=‘Total price’ + 10). This would mean that each choice would only need to update the ‘Total price’ and the ‘Monthly price’ and ‘RRP’ would update automatically.

I am looking forward to this as well. It would be super handy and save a lot of time when rescaling things if you could use the variables on things like corner radii.

+1 being able to multiply spacing values by a base variable would save a lot of manual effort
