When I use an external keyboard, Calca still auto-scrolls such that the cursor is near the top of the screen. It seems impossible to type with the cursor near the bottom of the screen, so the extra screen real-estate gained by using an external keyboard is wasted. If I two-finger scroll the text, it scrolls right back as soon as I hit a key.15 votes
Ah yes, I didn’t take into account external keyboards. I’ll try to get this fixed in the next update!
Should be able to define the equivalent to an #include operator referencing another calca file. Then it would be possible to reference the functions, and variables defined.17 votes
E.g. I should be able to say
current time = 8 am
travel = 30 minutes
breakfast = 2 hours
office arrival = current time + travel + breakfast
office arrival =>
10:30 am11 votes
I'd like to integrate Calca more tightly into my workflow, and think it'd great if I could edit a doc with something like Sublime Text and then have Calca detect changes to that already opened doc.3 votes
You should change the Gestures example to...
speed = 87.9 mph
mass of DeLorean = 2712 lb
energy = 1/2 * mass of DeLorean * speed^2 in kJ
=> 949.7208 kJ
duration of lightning strike = 786.7 µs
jigowatts = GW
power = energy / duration of lightning strike in jigowatts
=> 1.2072 jigowatts1 vote
Haha, thank you. Love it.
You should be able to tap links in the iOS version to go to the linked website. If tapping doesn't work because it conflicts with text editing, maybe Calca can respond to a long press by selecting the link and prompting to open it in Safari.
As far as I see, currently there is no way to open a linked website in the iPhone version.3 votes
its really anoying to type "=" and ">" everytime to compute a calculation.So i made a autohotkey script to make it work just like mathematica (Shift+Enter Style).
Here is my script.You press Shift+enter:
IfWinActive ahk_class WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.129c866
This script will only work when Calca window is in focus.Eventually i would want this functuanality to be baked in Calca.I think its really convenient.28 votes
Just want to be able to search through a file to find something, especially when looking at the reference documentation10 votes
- on a document longer than 10 or 20 lines, the editor will often scroll itself to a location where the cursor position is not visible
- cursor acts funny around values computed with =>. particularly if a computed value is the last thing in the document and you want to add something after that, it's quite painful
- when variables contain spaces, the auto-suggested versions of these variables sometimes lack spaces
- general poor quality overall! invest in QA, please. e.g. "performance test" crashes on my iPhone 4S18 votes
Read you loud and clear. A few of those bugs will be fixed in the 1.3 update, and I’ll double check all your scenarios.
Tapping at the end of a line which ends in a number selects the number, no way to add text to the end of the line.11 votes
I will be turning off the tap a number feature to prevent these kinds of problems.
Add an option in the client, perhaps test every week or every nn launches.
Or send an email to registered users. Windows version only I suspect.9 votes
I plan on overhauling the update system.
Put in a Trial date and then calculate another date by formula i.e. minus x days gives a date for another event.16 votes

Provide a repository where users can contribute and share their favorite functions to help quickly extend Calca's capabilities through reuse of proven solutions.12 votes
I often find myself needing time calculation, such as the number of hours between midnight and 9:30am. Or the number of days between 25th October 2013 and 25th December 2013.126 votes
I think the cursor swiping in Calca iOS, while a great addition, is a bit too fast. I overshoot my target consistently.
You could slow it down, as it's mostly there for precision as I see it. If you want to move the cursor several lines, tapping and the correcting is faster than sliding multiple times.
Another option is to implement some sort of acceleration, just like a mouse.6 votes
I agree, it’s a bit too quick. I may add a touch of acceleration so that you can still move quickly while still gaining more control on small movements.
include "calca/vector.clc" # for a calca definition file. The file would be relative from the user folder
include <physics.clc> # this would be relative from the calca application bundle folder.10 votes
Add an easy way (button/syntax) to copy the result of the previous calculation to the current cursor.31 votes
