MRR Posted April 6, 2018 Share Posted April 6, 2018 When typing a closing parenthesis, I would like Alfred to add an opening parenthesis at the start of the field. Typing this: 20+8) results in: (20+8) For an example, let's say you're doing a calculation in Alfred. 20+8 and you want to divide that result by 3 20+8/3 is incorrect because PEDMAS/BODMAS interprets it as: 8/3 + 20 So you add a closing paragraph: 20+8) and then you have to go back to the start and add the opening paragraph and then go back and divide by 3 and I know it sounds lazy to request an automatic opening paragraph mark but isn't automating lazy the whole point of Alfred? Here's how it should work: When a ")" is added, Alfred should look back in the statement and add a parenthesis at a previous math statement (+-/*) ex: 4+9*8) results in: 4+(9*8) or, not finding that, at the start of the statement. 9*8) results in: (9*8) Thank you and have a wonderful day.
