    I've created a new version of Surface Text ( v2.1.5 ) that includes ability to use expressions. Thanks @kevin_o_toole_1
    for the pointers on the syntax, that definitely saved time!

    The test case in the new version is pictured below ( it uses Kevin's suggested expression)

    One thing I'd like at some point is for the user of a feature to be able to replace a parameter like a boolean, string, or enum (or even the suppression state) with an expression.
    I would really like this.
    Should I create an Improvement Request?

    Hi @dave_cowden I just stumbled across this handy tool. It has made my life so much easier. Thank you. 
    However, it doesn't recognise Japanese font.. which Onshape does, under Noto Sans Japanese.

    Is there an easy way to add it to the list under fontface library?
