Mac Tips - Calculator plugin for Quicksilver

August 25, 2006 by Gabe | [mmd] |

I think every long time Mac user is friends with Quicksilver. In fact I list it as one of my favorite Freeware apps. I find it difficult to use a Mac that doesn't have it installed. The calculator plugin for Quicksilver is extremely useful. To install it, go to the preferences for QS and check the box next to "Calculator Module"

Once it is installed, invoke QS (mine is activated by ctrl-space) and hit the period on your keyboard. This brings up the text editing box. Type an equation in and tab over to the next window. No start typing "Calculator" until the Calculator actions is selected.
