# Spotlight - Soft Goods Tool should calculate weight

## Question

It would be great if the Soft Goods Tool Set could calculate the total weight value of the drape based on a standard of measurement for drape/fabric.   For example Rose Brand shows their weights as lbs or oz per linear yard (US) obviously it should also work similarly with meters.    It would be wonderful if the tool could take information such as that and convert it to the proper total weight/lbs per foot.  Based on the total square footage of drape.    Currently I have to take the ((L X W) / 13.5) x lbs per linear yard to obtain the total weight and update the field anytime a drape adjustment get's made.

The 13.5 comes from dividing the width (in inches) of the spec Rose Brand fabric (54").   So  (54 / 12)  * 3 =  sq feet per linear yard.    If the spec fabric on which the weight is based is a different size.  Say 60", it would be (60 /12) * 3 = 15.   So 15 would replace 13.5 in the above equation.
