    Why is calculations moved to widgets?

    Asked by District1010 on February 27, 2014 at 11:28 AM

    Widgets are good but could we consider some of them more important than others?  By way of example the Calculations Widget, as of today became an essential form tool (calculations were removed from the Text Box) To my mind this means that Calculations should at the very least be visible on the default toolbar.

    Thanks for your feedback, we greatly appreciate it.

    So in other words, the calculation should remain from where it was previously placed and opened? 

    Anyway, I have relayed that to our higher ups for a review. I think you have a point there.

    Appreciate that - let's see what happens there's a fine line between a Widget and a Tool I suspect.
