LaunchBar and simple math

This is another of those super simple LaunchBar features that, it seems, most people don’t know exists. Once you invoke LaunchBar, if you start your command with a number and a mathematical operator, LaunchBar will do the math. For example, if you punch in “2+2”, LaunchBar will present “4” without any further input.

If you press return, the equation will disappear from the input bar and just the result will show there; if you then start typing an operator, the “saved” result acts as the first operand.

It’s great.
