This is hrev28814.

The Options panel remembers its position from the last time. Is that really that useful? IMO it'd be better to open it at the position you've invoked it, i.e. somewhere near the DeskCalc application.

DeskCalc is intelligent enough to ignore spaces and accept "," and "." as equal. How about ":" == "\" == "/" and "x" == "*" ?

You can drag&drop a selection from the text field into Tracker, creating an "Untitled clipping" text file containing the dragged number. How about naming the file according to the dragged number or "DeskCalc - {number}".

A small, inconsequential thing that's not even noticed by the average user, but kinda neat. Plus, someone who dragged a selection by accident can deduce at once what must have happened.

Oh, I'm sorry, but I have to add one more:

Either do away with the Options panel altogether, as those three entries fit easily into the right-click context menu. Or, if you prefer a separat panel (why? why?! :) ), lose the "Cancel" and "OK" button and apply live.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

I investigated the "Untitled clipping" problem and that is a "missing" feature in Tracker. So I'm closing this bug.

Actually no... Tracker already has a protocol for that. Never mind!
