Get the correct answer with paste

If you want the correct handling of operations, copy your calculation sequence, e.g., 1 + 2 * 3, and paste this into the widget screen (works for calculator.app as well). You will get the correct result, 7.

As others stated, the widget behaves like a cheap calculator that assumes you want an intermediate result when you enter items individually. But if you paste a more complex calculations, the order of operations is handled correctly. Works for me.
