Anyone know a way around this? the long strings of numbers are getting really ugly...

I suppose I could ROUND(value*100) to all my percent fields, and return them as TEXT instead with + '%'

Are you sure that your "percent" field is not a string field? If it is you just need to mulply it by 1 and then the percentage rendering tools in the formula will work.

Rob,

Take a look at the image in the original post. The "Percent" field is a formula field with type Percent.

Length 3, Decimals 0.

Ok, I misunderstood. I thought that your formula was: {{$Model.scheduledInitialAppointments.data.0.Percent}} (Which is a valid formula btw) I guess you are using the merge syntax to show the field on your page, and in that case you are right - we are not processing the rendering suggested by the metadata override. This has been noted...

Thanks, Rob...

Any thoughts on when this might be updated? I have to weigh the work of changing all my percent formula fields to text fields with ROUND(old_percent_formula) + '%'... or waiting until the fix...

As an aside... being able to use global merge syntax in formulas is awesome. :)

I am experiencing this issue as well. Trying to use a Ui-Only percent field in the title of a graph and the meta data is not being honored. Any update on this?
