The Gcalc tool no longer works like a standard adding machine. Prior to upgrading to Unity , i WAS ABLE

Asked by Gnusboy on 2012-03-25

The Gcalc 6.2.0 tool no longer works like a standard adding machine. Prior to upgrading to Unity I was able to use the calculator to add a large string on numbers, which would stay visible and could be doubled checked for accuracy. Now when a long stream of numbers are entered in the basic "automatic, 2 decimal places" mode, anything beyond 15 entries disappears from view. Additional entries beyond that point cannot be seen nor are they added to the sum. Example:

12+12+12+12+12,+12+12+12+12+12,+12+12+12+12+12 *stop*
More entries to the string will not be accepted.

Prior Gcalc versions did not have this limitations. How can this be fixed to work like a very simple adding machine?
