[SOLVED, 0.73-dev3] Support for multiplication sign: ×

15. March 2018, 20:39

Can you please add support for multiplication sign × ? In Czechia is this in formulas very often.
Sometimes owners use also small letter x, but it is not very common.

Eg.:

Code: Select all

N 50° ( C ) . (A+B+C+D+E+F+G+H+I) × 3 - 192 
E 012° (I+F) . (B×H×D) - (E×F×H+D+G+D+101)

Thank you.

I added the sign to the parser.
Not sure, when i will release a new version of the addon, but then it will be in there.

:o I just wanted to post exactly the same feature request. :o

So please release it a.s.a.p. because this solves issues in 50% of all multi cache listings (just my experience).
Maybe you could check whether the formula contains mixed case letters OR even better:
show a list with

AxB+3xC
A*B+3*C

just as in the case when the formula is ambiguous:

N 48° AB.A
N 48° AB.A + B
N 48° AB.A + B + [C*D]

There's also the symbol • (made with ALT and 7 from the NumBlock) which means multiply...
ASCII-Code = ?

Many thanks for new version and this feature added.

Could you please consider to add support for "x" (letter X)?
I understand, that there could be some errors with parser and variable X, but what about to show a dialog if there are more than two x signs in selected text and offer "Do you want to replace 'x' sign with *?" (Of course same with X).

The parser for letter x (small x) is already integrated.
