Make math expressions in widgets more discoverable
We had overwhelmingly positive feedback for reposting a quick video that demonstrates math expressions in spinboxes — a feature that's part of stable releases for 8+ years already. The reach of that post rivals some of our release announcements. So it seems that there is as much interest as much surprise that this feature existed at all.
To quote one of the users:
I don't want to mention how many instances of calc I opened before I realized this was a thing.
It seems that we could do with figuring out how to make math expressions more discoverable.
Another user suggested:
Maybe put a little calculator icon watermark in the right side of the control when the functionality is available?
While I'm not sure that this is a perfect solution (especially for sliders), I think it's a call for a discussion how we could improve this.
