Description

Aliasmanager icon.png This macro helps managing aliases inside FreeCAD Spreadsheet workbench. It is able to:

  • create aliases based on first column (A column)
  • delete aliases placed on a column
  • move aliases from one column to another one
  • create a "part family", that's it, create different files for each column in a range. It will add to the original name a suffix based on first row (1)
