JSI Tip 1333. Pasting negative values into the Calculator.

In tip 0810, I described the Calculator changes delivered with SP4.

If you paste a negative value into the Calculator Display window, it does not display correctly. Example:

1. Calculate 1 - 50 = -49 and copy the negative number to the clip board.

2. Paste the clipboard value into the dsiplay winddow.

3. The display shows a positive 49.

To workaround this bug, press F9 after pasting a negative number. This makes the value negative.
