Restore state of FARR
« on: January 03, 2008, 09:09:48 AM »
Hi,
I can not find any option to enable restoring of last state. By that I mean, that f.e. I do several calculations of this kind "fc 5+5" and afterwards I close the window. And when I call FARR back I would like to have completely the same state as it was when I closed it. Is there any option like this?
Thank you ;)

oh i misunderstood.
if you bring farr back up and type fc again, you should see your previous history tape and the last value will still be there so that you can use it.

but you mean you want it so that if you bring up farr again, you are already open to the "fc" text and the calculator is showing?

one workaround for now is to create a special hotkey in farr that opens and starts the text saying "fc "

so now whenever you want to use farr calculator you hit shift+break or whatever, and farr will pop up ready to do calculations.

I agree with lanux128. That is exactly what I want  :Thmbsup:

one more problem found: When I change regular expression for Fcalc to "^ (.*)$|^ $" (so when I type "space" it starts fcalc) and write some expression and hit enter it switches from space back to its default "fc ". (for now I have solved it by such an expression "^ (.*)$|^ $|^fc (.*)$|^fc$"

nice work, czechboy! btw, can i use the regex in the override section instead of overwriting the existing one (see pic)?
