Thanks for the link and the education on immediate execution. I downloaded that one and will give it a spin. It looks like it might fit the bill for the majority of the stuff I do.

I frequently will check a current stock price, subtract from it the price I bought some shares at, and then multiply by the number of shares I bought, which is where stuff like 55.25-44.5675*125 comes into play. That's probably the most simplistic kind of use I do, but after 20 or so years of entering it without the extra [Enter] being needed, it is a constant annoyance for me.
