CalcPad X allows you to type in a mathematical expression, edit it for accuracy, format it for easy readability, then evaluate it with single mouse click or key press. And, because it takes full account of standard use of brackets (braces) and mathematical hierarchies (i.e. the orders of precedence of operators - multiplication before addition etc), you can type the expression exactly as it's written. True "wysiwyg" calculating! Each "Pad" (mathematical expression) can be saved for later use (e.g. for a commonly used conversion or formula). Use variables to easily evaluate the same expression with multiple values. Rename variables for clarity and readability. Many scientific and trigonometric functions are included and more will be available with future releases (requests accepted!).

What's new in this version:
- Fixed a bug where saved Paper Tape data would not be restored properly. Any previously saved pads still have the Tape data saved - that data will now display properly on opening.
- Added a "Previous Answer" button that inserts a ":Ans" variable that holds the results from the last (successful) evaluation. This variable is saved and restored with the pad.
