Auto-text calculator

How difficult would it be to add a calculator function to the autotext box? For example if I had auto-texts x, y, and z, and I wanted to create an autotext called sum that had the value of x + y + z. That would be super useful to my current workflow.

Sounds like an unusual request. Not sure about how difficult it would be to add but in the meantime, you could use an imported spreadsheet that has the math built in.

What values are you adding?
Prices? Sizes?
You can add attrbutes to components and groups in Sketchup, which can be used as labels in LayOut.

Yea, I agree with Jack, in SketchUp you’d create a custom dynamic attribute named "SumXYZ" that = X + Y + Z add then it’d appear in the AutoText selection box.
