    How does this not work? Very irritating and forces you to do some hacky styling.

    is this going to be made? Seems pretty big to not be able to do this.

    When is this going to be added? This is necessary for accurate layouts. Using percentages sucks and having a consistent layout across browsers is impossible without calc() support.

    As the article brings out:

    The most useful ability of calc() is its ability to mix units, like percentages and pixels


    I think more people would vote for this if they knew it existed...

    I've run out of votes, but this would be really useful.

    I just switched from code to Webflow, and although I'm very impressed, I'm also disappointed that lots of things (pseudo-elements, cascading styles, object-fit, visibility and CSS Calc()) aren't available.

    This is SO USEFUL. I use it all the time in code to calculate custom containers. If only more people would know about this.

    small things - like this one - adds up to make Webflow mature.

    Yeeehaaw. Will this happen? Calc party still on?

    It blows my mind that this isn't possible. Please stop adding other features until you add the ability to use calc().

  • Dan Dawson commented

    Absolutely yes.

    Definitely needed when a header is positioned fixed and you need the height of page sections to be 100vh - headerHeight...

    This would be brilliant, especially directly in the style panel. Just like choosing units, it would be awesome to be able to choose "custom" and then input your own values.

    Loads of use cases, but it would be super helpful for mobile when using viewport units where the browser chrome on first load isn't taken in to account for the calculation, so content can extend lower than intended until the user scrolls.

    Also as Takeaki mentioned... being able to subtract the height/width of fixed elements automatically.

    Calc Function for Typography would be awesome. But well. in all of css. (...)

    It would be great if it would work live in the designer, when injecting it in custom code.
