How can we improve the newest version of Windward Studios Products?

Allow formatting in set tags

It is not currently possible to supply formatting in set tags (e.g. if I have a value stored as a string that I want to convert to a number - to do maths on it)
I have to: Create an out tag (setting it as a variable) and perform the required formatting - put this tag in white text so it's not displayed

Ideally I would like to have all the options I have available for formatting an Out tag in a Set tag

    Hi Robert,

    My name is Adam Jackson and I'm a Product Manager with Windward. Thanks for your request.

    Set Tags are fundamentally variables and do not have value, and the Out tag allows you to display that raw value. As such, it doesn't make sense for us to apply formatting to Set Tags like you can do with Out Tags.

    We'll keep an eye on this post and if we see mroe traction we'll consider options for some type of workaround or advanced functionality for you. Thanks!
