10.4: Be aware of a Calculator widget bug
Authored by: Zee on May 24, '05 10:09:50AM

The whole calculator app has problems in Tiger. I reported this to Apple but basically if I open the calculator app (Basic, let's say) then close the window (but not quit the app) it USED to be that if you clicked the app in the dock the window would open back up, no go. Try selecting Basic from the menu in the app and it STILL won't come back. Now try quitting the calculator app from the application menu, won't quit. You can only quit it from the dock menu and then launch it again to get the calculator window back.

Have you seen this thread? I had similar problems and found this to be the source of my troubles.

Make a new one?

I haven't had time to install Tiger yet, so maybe I missed something, but isn't the point of "widgets" that you can just make your own calculator *fairly* easily? Considering all the effort going into this post, I imagine it's a good candidate for a "pick of the week".
