I'm sure I'm missing something obvious...

Code:
struct  Foo
        bar     dq      4 dup ?
ends

vmovapd ymm0, [Foo.bar] ; Error: operand sizes do not match
vmovapd ymm0, qqword [Foo.bar] ; Assembles OK
    


I'm getting a bit fed up of qualifying every memory operand with "qqword". Is there a way of defining a label inside a struct that fasm "knows" is a qqword, so I don't have to specify an operand size override?

No, currently the "struct" macro does not have such facilities. You would have to go with the low-level "struc" approach:
Code:
struc Foo {
  label .bar qqword
             dq 4 dup ?
}

virtual at 0
  Foo Foo
end virtual

vmovapd ymm0,[Foo.bar]

Gotcha. I hardly ever use "struc"; I rely on "sizeof" quite a lot. I'll just grin and bear it, it was only a small gripe.

BTW, thanks for the latest version! Stupendously good service, as always! Smile

Another way is to define the label independently:

Code:
struct  Foo
        bar     dq      4 dup ? 
ends
label Foo.qqBar qqword at Foo.bar

vmovapd ymm0, [Foo.qqBar]
