I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Make Calca easier to use with an external keyboard by disabling auto-scrolling

    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.

    • Allow external references to functions and variables in other calca files

      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.

      • you can do time manipulation.

        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 am

        • Detect file changes made by other apps

          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.

          • Change the Gestures example to add jigowatt calculation

            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 jigowatts

            • Tapping links should open the website in Safari (iOS)

              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.

              • Compute in Calca like mathematica

                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:
                ------------Script Start
                +Enter::
                IfWinActive ahk_class WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.129c866
                {
                Send {=}
                Send >
                Send {Space}

                }
                Return
                -----------Script End
                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.

                  • make the iOS text editor less buggy

                    - 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 4S

                      • ...detect when a new version of Calca is available

                        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.

                        • Dates, Need a way to calculate dates. Example Set Date - 7 gives the new date.

                          Put in a Trial date and then calculate another date by formula i.e. minus x days gives a date for another event.

                                    • Fine-tune iOS cursor swiping

                                      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.

                                      • Add a file include mechanism so that definitions do not have to be repeated

                                        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.

                                          Add an easy way (button/syntax) to copy the result of the previous calculation to the current cursor.
