to most spell checkers.

It captures keystrokes made anywhere in the Windows environment rather

than checking the text entered in a particular window - as a result it

only checks as you type and can't be made to re-check a word once

you've started typing the next word.

You'll also need the paid-for version to get multiple languages.

While it's very good at what it does, I'd say it was only really

useful for programs that have no facility for installing a dedicated

spell checker.

Greg - Hi Daniel,

The upcoming NoteTab 7.01 will use scientific notation for very large

numbers. However, as Don explained, integers cannot exceed this range:

-9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 9,223,372,036,854,775,807

You should be aware, that the NoteTab Calc function has an option to specify the number of decimals, by default 2:

^$Calc(calculation;numDecimals)$

Hopefully Eric will retain this option, when Eric adds scientific notation.

I too am in favor of adding comma-grouping to large numbers. Though a clip could do this fairly easily, using the steps:

left-pad the number to a string length divisible by 3,

split the string to length 3,

assign result to a newline-delimited array,

replace the newlines with commas.

Cheers

I too am in favor of adding comma-grouping to large numbers. Though a clip could do this fairly easily, using the steps:

-----------------

But please - only if it can be toggled on and off. Not everyone wants those commas.
