Decimal places

Under Consideration

Can a future version have 1o decimal places. This would be really usefel when investigating limits using the zoom function.

Well, I could increase the number of decimal spaces shown but this would not change the accuracy of internal computations. GeoGebra works with double precision floating point numbers and I don't want to show a lot of decimals that are simply wrong...


Bests,

Thanks Markus. Come to think of it, 5 decimal places is enough. Can I congratulate you on GeoGebra - it is such an amazing piece of software. The more I discover, the more impressed I am. It has some really great and unique features. The zoom tool is the best zoom tool on any maths software package I have seen. I love how you can move the functions around the number plane simply by grabbing it with the mouse.


Is it possible to restrict the axes so that decimal quantities of pi are not displayed. e.g. can 1.5pi be displayed as 3pi/2?


Will a future version have default buttons on the drawing pad so GeoGebra opens with the font size, line colour, line thickness that the user desires?


Cheers

P.S. I will be running a workshop on GeoGebra in Sydney this year. More people must find out about this great software package. I'm sure everyone in the maths community is indebted to you for designing such fabulous software.
