Derived parameter autocomplete does not work

I found this post from 2020 of a user experiencing the same issue I am having (link: https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/fusion-support/autofill-derived-parameter-names/m-p/9468658), and the response suggests that this should work, but it does not.

 

  1. Create a design and component
  2. Create a set of user parameters, and be sure to favorite at least one
    • Sideways related issue - it should not be necessary to favorite user parameters for derivation. When you derive parameters, it should allow you to derive all user parameters.
  3. Create a new design
  4. Derive the component created in Step 1, and include the user parameters
  5. Attempt to use one of the derived parameters as a value in a field in any of the commands.
  6. See that autocomplete does not pick up on the derived parameter name.
    • To add insult to injury, you cannot copy the parameter name from the parameters window to try and just copy/paste the name into the needed field. You are forced to type out the full, changed, parameter name.

I have attached a pair of screenshots showing the user parameters in the derived design, and then attempting to use the parameter, and the autocomplete failure.

Just tested this, and it is certainly a work around, but the original issue remains. At no other time do you have to mark a parameter as a favorite in order to get autocomplete to function. At best this is completely inconsistent behavior within the app. You already have to mark the parameter as a favorite in the original design in order to derive it as a parameter in the derived design. If you have already marked the parameter as a favorite once, why in the world would you be expected to do so a second time just to get the parameter to work as expected?

 

So there is a work around, yes, but that is not a solution, and the behavior is still broken as it exists in the current version of Fusion.

If so, @Phil.E  will create a ticket.
