  1. Fix the Patron bug

    Upon tapping 12 month purchase. The phone crashed. I still got billed, and all the screen still tell me to be a patron.
    To be clear, if you want to take money from people you need to fix the following ASAP:

    1) stop the app crashing on purchase.
    2) provide a support email address or method in app to fix payment issues.
    3) remove the banners asking to be a patron if you have already donated.

      I have fixed the bug but unfortunately will need to release a new update so that you can manually get credit. I am very sorry for this inconvenience and thank you kindly for your support!

    • Keyboard shortcut to auto complete variable name on Mac OS X

      I like how you can use long variable names with spaces in them, but having a shortcut to autocomplete them would be great (similar to the iOS version).

      • Built-in units and unit selection

        It would be great if unit definitions were built in, and you could select the units for your output. So, for example, you could type:

        1ft =>

        and then it could automatically output 12in, or .3048m, or any other length unit. Perhaps you could allow the user to specify the output unit by letting them type over the units in the output. (This is how Mathcad does this.)

        • Is Calca alive?

          Hi everyone.

          I love Calca. I think it's an incredible app for quick and complex math. And it has a lot of potential to become some kind of pocket mathematica.
          But it's been some time since last release, and main developer has not respond to any comment since november last year. I hope he doing well.
          There is no twitter, facebook or blog so it's not possible to have news about development progress. Do you know if calca is still alive? It would very bad news if this project got abandoned.

          • Allow Horizontal Lines to breakup a document visually

            I tried adding a horizontal line - for example:
            -----------------------------------------------------------
            To visually break up a document.
            However, it caused all of the calculations to break!

            • Calca file suffix

              Calca (on OSX) saves files with the txt extension. This makes it impossible for me to open calca files by double clicking on them (nor can I easily detect them as "special" files).
              I realize that calca files are plain text, but that's not how I use it.
              Therefore I'd like an (optional) Calca-specific file suffix (let's just say .calca or .clc).

              • add the setting for the different number and language (less important) formats

                Please add the possibility to change the number format. The rest of the world outside of US still can't use actual number formats.

                • Internationalization (comma vs. dot)

                  I'd like to see Calca a bit more international. Here in Europe we use dots - not commas - as decimal delimiter.

                  In OS X (System Preferences -> Language & Text -> Region) I choose how I'd like my numbers to be formatted. It would be nice if Calca would respect that and perhaps to enforce one behavior if I want to do work for Americans or vice versa.

                  So long, Stephan

                  • Windows version

                    I love this on my iPad and iPhone, but unfortunately I'm still forced to use Windows at work. Currently I'm doing calculation documentation with Mathcad, which works well but is way too expensive for what it does, and it doesn't output in plain text. This looks like a perfect replacement. If only it were for Windows! (This might require some syncing solution besides iCloud - perhaps Dropbox?)

                    • Set ### Cultures pref in Mac app

                      The iOS app automagically prepends a "#@de-DE" to a new calculation (probably because my iPhone is set to German). The Mac app does not.

                      It would be good to either copy the iOS behavior or to have a setting somewhere which lets me set it.

                      • Add support for international currency symbols

                        If I take the fixed rate mortgage example and swap "£" for "$", the calculation falls apart - it's be nice to be able to use either.

                        • Allow using variables across Markdown Sections

                          A variable set in a Markdown Section can not be used outside that section as said in docs. "Definitions and equations written under a heading are only available in that heading and its children." This makes it hard to build a large Markdown document that integrates variables calculated in different sections. For example if you want to build a budget document and have separate sections on groceries, housing, etc. you can't refer to the totals from the groceries and other sections. It would be nice if there was some way to export values from a section or make them global.

                          • Summing of tables

                            I'd like to be able to do this:

                            Shopping list =

                            Milk = £1.00
                            Eggs = £1.50
                            Ham = £2.50

                            Total = sum(Shopping list) => £5.00

                            When adding an item to the the shopping list, the total should update.

                            It's somewhat similar to the "wildcard summation" idea, although that depends on labelling each item with something unique and may have unintended side effects if you happen to use the same pattern elsewhere by mistake.
