Decimator

1.5
20 April 2006

Fraction to decimal conversions; four versions available.

Overview

Decimator is a fraction-to-decimal converter.

Many a designer, engineer and layout artist has had a strip of paper taped to the side of their monitor showing the fraction to decimal conversions for various parts of an inch (who can remember what 9/32 of an inch is?). This widget moves that breakdown to your Dashboard and improves on it. Now, a click on the measurement you are interested in will copy the decimal value to your clipboard for easy insertion into whatever program you happen to be using. Handy!

DecimatorCondensed version removes the 32nds measurements so that those who don't need them can save some screen real estate.

What's new in Decimator

Version 1.5:
  • Added expand/collapse capabilities

the same thing can be done just dividing out the fraction. but if you insist in having this, you may as well give the user the option of typing in a custom fraction and dividing it out for them.

Don't know what the fuss is about. I'm the graphic designer mentioned in the description (okay, not specifically) and often have to figure out a decimal measurement for a fraction in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop...and this handy-dandy little chart is way nicer looking than the old ref chart on my desk. And it's easier to read! It's useful, practical and FREE. (Though the idea of typing in your own value would be nice...)

I don't know how do designers think of this widget, but no engineers that working in front of the computer will do such silly thing such as input decimal numbers.

Thanks for the feedback, anonymous. This widget was written to perform a specific purpose for my personal use, which it does well. I considered a variation which would do custom fractions, but decided against it because the calculator widget can already do that.
