In Geogebra CAS calculator, the "toggle" from numeric to exact does not appear with the SOLVE input

In the tutorial for the CAS Calculator it mentions that after solving an equation you can toggle between the exact answer and a decimal approximation.


Note: You can also enter the equation and then select Solve from the context menu. In addition a 24px-Numeric_toggle_button toggle button for numeric output will appear allowing you to change the result into a rounded decimal. You can toggle back to exact output by pressing the corresponding 24px-Symbolic_toggle_button toggle button.


I have found however that the toggle button only shows up when you enter the exact answer on a separate input line, not with the equation solution output. Is this correct behavior?

It would be the identical file as the tutorial for the CAS calculator. The toggle for numeric output is not available for the output of a SOLVE. I will reproduce that input and then post the ggb file. Thanks
