Summary0003518: Expressions (fx) not updated
DescriptionWhen I try to merge a parametric object in a new document, its expressions are not updated. For eg. suppose we have a parametric object which has an expression "object.Length.Value". And when I try to merge this object in some document which already have some objects, the newly merge object named as "object001" but its expression remains the same (i.e "object.Length.Value"). I expected that newly expression should changed as "object001.Length.Value".

Thanks for fixing this issue but there is still small bug present. The expression after the first operator (+, -, *, /) is not updated.

I have created a Cube using Part workbench and also created a sketch of rectangle. Expression of one side of the rectangle is "Box.Length" and other side is "Box.Length + Box.Length". This file has two objects (i.e. Box and sketch) and saved it as testing.fcstd.

Now, created a new document in FreeCAD, merged this testing.fcstd twice. This file has four objects (i.e. Box, Sketch, Box001 and Sketch001) and expressions of Sketch001 object are "[('Constraints[9]', 'Box001.Length'), ('Constraints[8]', 'Box001.Length + Box.Length')]".

The first expression is updated properly (Box.Length -> Box001.Length) but the expression in which operators are used is not updated properly ('Box.Length + Box.Length' -> 'Box001.Length + Box.Length'). It should be equal to `Box001.Length + Box001.Length`

@wmayer should we assign this ticket to the 0.19 milestone?

I think we would need to replace all occurences of the object name in the expression string, I could try that:
But there might be dire implications, such as an object having the same name as a property.. Ex an object named Length...
