(ctr+c,ctr+v)Once the formulas are pasted in place, they default to 4 decimal places. This isn't that big of a deal, but it is rather annoying to have to go back and reset the decimal places to the desired number. This is especially annoying when you have results shown to different decimal places. Keep in mind my default is set to 2 decimal places. So when I paste some formulas (even from the same worksheet), they will appear with 4 decimal places. Any input into this would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

Even though I have the default set to 2 decimal places (which works as it should when I manually enter a formula), when I copy that same formula using ctr+c and paste using ctr+v, the result will display with 4 decimal places if the decimals are available in the formula. so 1.2222 + 2 = 3.22, but when I copy and paste this, it looks like 1.2222 + 2 = 3.2222Thanks

For some reason when you copy an evaluation it seems to take on the number of decimal places as the highest operand. But if you add the evaluation after the paste, it works properly.

It does look like when the evaluation operand is copied, the math region has some deviations from default compared to the region that it is copied from. Is this intended or for any specific purpose?

Lets see what the devs have to say.

JeanAre you talking about right-click copy/paste? That produces the same result as ctr+c/ctr+v. Interestingly enough though, if you copy/paste by holding ctr, then clicking and dragging, it copies the evaluated function and keeps the original decimal places. "this feature is genius" Jean, can you elaborate on what exactly "this feature" is? thanks

Very handy in many instances.The keyboard copy/paste dates back Win 3.1 ?Cheers ... Enjoy Smath
