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.

  1. Use number group separators from system settings

    Currently it uses comma, and it's really annoying:

    fpd = fps * 86400 => 1,296,000

    Applications should use "Number separators" setting from System Preferences -> Language & Region.

    Thank you for great app! It saves tons of time.

      The app defaults to “invariant” culture (which mimics US standards). The reference manual shows you how to switch cultures. The culture is not set automatically so that you can share the files with people outside your country.

    • Possible bug with parentheses under division

      I think the following should yield the same result, and I believe the latter is supposed to be correct.

      6^2/2(3)+4=> 10

      6^2/2*3+4=> 58

      • Python on Calca

        I think a Calca-like Python editor would be great. It would work just like Calca but with the flexibility and extensibility of a full fledged programming language like Python.

        It would be great to use loops, list comprehensions and libraries available when working in Python but with the Calca interface.

        I'd pay good money for something like it.

        • In Calca, "# Header" displays the "#". In other Markdown programs, the processed # is not visible.

          Also, **italics produces italics and shows the **. My understanding is that *italics* should produce italics (w/o the asterisks showing) and **bold** should produce bold (w/o the asterisks showing).

            Calca always shows every character. Editorial is an example of another app like this. If you want a perfect preview, then use Marked or other similar app – it’s great for generating HTML too.

          • Add querying of Wolfram|Alpha

            For example, currently "how many weekdays in september = # Google doesn't know". Yet, Wolfram|Alpha appears to return a result in a parsable form.

            • Wildcard summation

              It would be cool to be able to do something like:

              cost sofa = 500kr
              cost table = 200kr
              cost paint = 50kr

              total cost = sum(cost*)
              total cost => 750kr

              So instead of doing `total cost = sofa + table + pain`, which you need to update once you purchase some more stuff, you can use wildcards.

              • Grouping and hiding segments

                In some of my texts, I have a lot of definitions at the top. It would be nice if I could group them and minimize them away so that they don't clutter the top when I'm looking at the file.
