10.5: Use Spotlight's calculations with Quick Look

I'm not entirely sure what specific procedure you're trying to explain with this hint. Could you give more details?

10.5: Use Spotlight's calculations with Quick Look
Authored by: Mac Berry on Nov 27, '07 08:57:47AM

I'm not too sure how to make it any clearer I'm afraid. Spotlight in Leopard allows you to perform simple calculations (e.g. type 3*2+42, and you'll see 48 in the results window).

You can use this feature while reading the figures you need from a document viewed in Quick Look, which is impossible using calculator.app because you can't see the Quick Look window at the same time as having another app in focus.

Ok, now I got it - for some reason I didn't get that you were comparing spotlight's calculator with calculator.app.

Thanks!
