Editing formulas in the property editor


When I try to edit long formulas in the property editor the formula usually breaks.
How do I make corrections to long formulas without rewriting them?

Also, when performing math operations, how do I add brackets?

I guess there’s no way to copy the formula out of the property editor, edit it outside, and put it back in, right?

This beginner thanks you in advance :dizzy:


Hi there, @bamapt… the limitations associated with editing long expressions are well-known, and Bubble is aware of them. With regard to adding parentheses, go to the Settings >> Versions tab and enable the experimental parentheses feature. The expression builder will place the parentheses in the expression for you, and sometimes it can be tricky to get them in the right place. That being said, I have had that feature enabled from day one, and I have never had any trouble with it.

Hope this helps.


Thank you for clarifying, @mikeloc

All the best,
