      Hi BONG,

      Did you know that you can type a math expression into a document then press
      Ctrl+E to get an info box with the calculated result. Your math expression
      is now highlighted/selected. Click ok or press enter to close the
      information box. If you want the result to replace the math expression
      click the paste button or press Ctrl+V. basically the Ctrl+E Evaluate
      function not only displays the result in an info box but it also stores the
      result in the clipboard for pasting to any document. If you do not want to
      replace the math expression just cursor to where you want the resulted
      pasted before you paste it.

      More interesting.

      2+2 works as noted above
      2+2= will not give you an information box but will paste the result
      after the equal sign so you will end up with 2+2=4 after you press Ctrl+E.

      Regards,

      Larry

      Hi Larry and Bong, ... Along with what Larry said you can also put your numbers into a column, but you must select them first doing it this way: 5 5 5=15 5

        Along with what Larry said you can also put your numbers into a
        column, but you must select them first doing it this way:

        5
        5
        5=15

        5
        *5=25

        5
        *5
        5=30

        5
        *5
        5
        -10=20

        -10
        /4=-2.5
