It would be nice to have a calculator feature inside the design work space of Onshape.

    @bryan_lagrange, Are you thinking about OS internal feature?
    Now, you may have a calculator open in background and use keyboard to switch between OS and Calc.
    I think, something like a keyboard shortcut to open external (configurable) app could do the trick faster.
    Is it somehow important that it should be evoked by mouse?

    I am just looking for something within the software so there is no back and forth.

    I'd rather just type the equation in the dimension and have it give the result. Like SW does so well...

    With the windows calculater there is an 'always on top' mode that is activated by the popout button to the right of 'Standard'

    Would it solve the problem to have a shortcut key (like CTRL+Enter) that replaces an expression with the result of evaluating it in feature parameters and dimensions?  Implementing a calculator inside Onhsape is a bit out-of-scope.
