Lets say you need to build stairs with a 5 1/2" rise to reset the desired riser height you would use the following key strokes to enter the new default setting for the calculator. Press 5, inch, 1, /, 2, stair, and the calculator window will display R-Htm 5 1/2. This tool really is that easy to use.
