Change a quote value modify the drawing + link quotes with entities

In other words, makes quotes editable AND linked to entities.

  • Today in the properties, the value is read only. Being able to edit the value would modify the linked entity properties to fit the new quote.
  • Changing a property would change the linked quotes accordingly. Today, if I change a circle diameter which is quoted, the quote remain where it was and is no more relevant.
This task depends upon

In addition, that would be great to be able to use variables in quotes or in properties. These variables would have a namespace associated to blocks or layers or file, and could be shared with other files.

Please use an other character and not the quote. Since unicode several characters are not keyboard accesable anymore.
