USING
In the upper left part of the window there is a button that opens the menu for selecting the work option  Calculator; Interpolation; Degree, slope:
Use transparaency  When setting is checked, the window will become transparent when the focus is lost
Calculator
Input field  field for entering the formula. After pressing the button "=" or on the keyboard of the button Enter the formula from the window will be calculated, and the result is displayed in the corresponding field
 The context menu for inserting functions. For more information about the functions, see below in the table Prefix  field for specifying the prefix. When adding a result to the drawing, the prefix will be added to the beginning of the result.
Output field  field for outputting the result of calculating the formula.
Suffix  field for specifying the suffix. When adding a result to the drawing, the suffix will be added to the end of the result.
Rounding  The indication of the number of decimal places to which the value in the output field will be rounded.
Группа Data from drawing contains functions for obtaining values from the drawing (the value is added to the end of the line of the input field). For some data retrieval options, it is possible to retrieve data from several objects by ticking the Several. Then when you select several objects from which you want to get the values, a window for selecting the sign will appear, which will be inserted between the values:
Round  indicates whether the values obtained from the drawing are rounded to the specified number of decimal places.

A complete list of buttons and functions (including those missing in the group of control buttons) is given in the table:
Buttons 0...9 Adding to the end of the text in the input field a digit corresponding to the pressed button . Adding a dot at the end of the text + Adding a plus sign to the end of the text in the input field  Adding a minus sign to the end of the text * Adding the "multiply" sign to the end of the text in the input field / Adding the "divide" sign to the end of the text x² Raising the second power of a number from the input field or result field (if there is no value in the input field) x³ Raising the third power of a number from the input field or result field (if there is no value in the input field) √ Extracting a square root from a number from the input field or the result field (if there is no value in the input field) ± Adding/deleting the minus sign as a result 1/х Divide the unit by the number from the input field or the result field (if there is no value in the input field) sin Returns the sine of the specified number from the input field or the result field (if there is no value in the input field) tan Returns the tangent of a given number from the input field or the result field (if there is no value in the input field) π
