What Plugin does this relate to? What version of the Plugin?

Calculator 0.5 from as well as SVN r905 build.

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Install the plugin.
2. Select View/Calculator.
3. Use numeric keys to input a number.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

First of all, the calculator window is not focused upon opening which is an
unexpected behavior. Even if focused, the numbers cannot be entered using
the numeric keys. I have only tested the keys in the main block as my
notebook (IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad T60) does not have a num-pad. The notebook
can emulate the num-pad using other keys (using the Fn key) but that
doesn't work either. Both were expected to work.

What version of Editra are you using? On what operating system?

Editra 0.4.95 on Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit SP2.

Please provide any additional information below.

Additionally, because the calculator window is a tool-window, it does not
appear in the Windows Task Bar, nor in the Alt-Tab menu. Overlapping it
with any other window makes it inaccessible until the overlapping window is
minimized/moved/closed so the calculator window is again visible. The only
other way is to untick the calculator in the View menu and reopen it again.

As a side note, it would be good to make the calculator's window position

I haven't tested any of the above issues on other operating systems so I
cannot tell if they are Windows specific or not.

It currently does not have keyboard support.

I only wrote the calculator plugin as an example of how to write a plugin so didn't
do much with it feature wise. If someone wants to extend it to have these features
patches would be accepted.
