Auto-insert would probably be the way. It may be more troublesome than you realize though. You wouldn't be able to start any line without a number, without it using the previous answer. So "sqrt(4)" would automatically pull the answer from the previous expression.
I'm a bit confused. Could you give a more detailed example?
That would be a beneficial behavior. I wonder if I can just prevent it from deleting newline characters. Right now, in the context menu, you can also click on "Remove Line", which I added a week or so ago. I added a keyboard shortcut for this (ctrl+r) for this newest release, which I meant to do from the very beginning. *I realize I need to fix this, the cursor appears at the beginning of the textbox when I use this*
Thanks for the option. Waiting for the backspace behavior and the fix.
Hmm... you mean something like an archive option? Something that saves to a new unique file each time you clear it and allows you to browse those archived files? Or do you want to have a single file that is split into pages that you can iterate through? I had something similar to the latter but nixed it because the implementation wasn't great. You had a predefined amount of tabs, 4 or 8. I couldn't do proper tabs because I don't understand WPF/UI very well.
I don't really have a preference. Think of it like "clear" in a terminal. The screen
is cleared but the history is still there. If I want to check something in yesterday's calculations, maybe I can click a button or access a menu item or something.
I am not sure what you mean by tabs, though.
Yes you can do it, you type "r(x)=sqrt(x)" in custom functions.
Thanks a lot and thanks for the new version!
A couple more suggestions:
1. autocomplete while entering units. For example, if you enter:
what is pla...
, it should show a list containing Planck units, plastic number, etc.
: show or suggest-complete earth circumference, etc
A toggle in the settings to enable this automatically or require a shortcut should give the user the choice. I am not sure how easy this is to implement though.
2. The periodic table is a very nice addition (What is the purpose of the little field? Edit: nvm, got it. cool feature! Hint for other users, play with the visual options and drag the scrollbar!
), but there should be no popup window when clicking an element. Instead, a click should highlight the item and fix the contents of the box above, so that the contents can be copied.
Right now, if you try to move the cursor to the box, you hover over other elements which changes the content!
3. I understand you may not want to remove the splash screen, which is totally your right, but can you shorten it a bit? I takes half a second or so to fade out once the window has loaded, which (I know this is silly) irritates me a bit
. It is just a pet peeve of mine, so I can't help but ask! Sorry if this is a bit presumptuous.
