It is very confusing when we try using arithematic operators (+-*/) in kcalc. KCalc should proive some clue that the operater is used.
How to reproduce:
1. open kcalc
2. type 6
3. type +
4. type 6
5. type enter
Please observe in the above calculation, that after pressing '+' sign, kcalc doesn't show '+' in the Display.
1. Symbols and Colors should be used to make the operations clear.
2. e.g., pressing + should show '+' sign below "Dec" in the view
3. Also using a different color or flashing with different color when an operator is pressed will help the user to know that the operator is inputted properly.
I would request, to change the Light-Green Color to Yellow when operator is entered.
2 -> background light green
+ -> background light Yellow
3 -> background light blue
5 -> background Light Red to signify result.
the colors could be changeable in settings. this way the user is more informed about the calculation.
I agree kcalc should display the operator
use show history (ctrl+h)
