When using the calculator, always enter a "0"  (or some digit) before the decimal point.
Like this ....      0.4375

Might be associated with your touch screen set-up.
Wish I could help there but have no experience with them.

hi russ,

it has nothing to do with touchscreen drivers. if you would be so kind just select auto calculator in the operator menu. now you can fill in a value in an dro with your mouse. if you try for example 34.89 you will find that 34. will work but the 89 you cannot fill in.

tnx

I did try it before first posting and it works fine here.
Are you using the standard Mach screen ?
If not, the dro might not be set to accept decimal entries.  (%+.2f)

hi,

i solved it. it has to do with country settings in windows. i configured dutch (netherlands). after i configured English (US) it works!!

Yes, there was a French  guy had the same issue, thought at first it may be because he was using a laptop but ended up it was the language option he had set. He set the keyboard to UK and it worked fine.
