A suit of services that allow you to calculate the mathematical result of expressions within the selected text in any application
Requires Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard
âThe Services menu in Mac OS X lets you use features of one application while working in another. In Snow Leopard, services are more simplified, streamlined, and helpful. The Services menu is contextual, so it shows just the services appropriate for the application youâre using or content youâre viewing rather than all available services. You can access services with a right click of your mouse or Control-click of your trackpad. You can configure the menu to show only the services you want, and you can even create your own services using Automator.â â”Apple
The included services can be used calculate the mathematical result of expressions within the selected text in any application. The result can replace the selected text, be inserted after it, or be spoken out loud.
Services can be invoked via the services menu, contextual menu or through pressing a user-defined key combination.
Example valid expressions that can be calculated:
