    You are right. The % sign in the Calculator widget seems to be not working properly.

    To calculate % for now, you have to use real value number.


    I have forwarded this thread to our higher team suppport so they can check the Calculator widget and hopefully fixed immediately the % function.

    We will notify you here once we have fixed it.
