Many times slopes are not printed on a map & it needs to be computed before
it can be input into the storm water apps. It would be really useful if we
had a little button placed next to all slope fields in all dialogs that
would open the Win Calculator (or an Autodesk Calculator) so the slope can
be computed & the resultant would be placed into the slope field. This would
help me keep my hands on the PC for all of the work instead of having to go
to the hand held calculator & back to the keyboard.

I know what you mean. I just assigned a shortcut key to my Windows calculator. I actually use the Windows PowerToy calculator. I assigned CTRL-SHIFT-F11 as the shortcut, so it pops right up.

Which app? I know that they all act a bit differently from time to time,
but I know that some will calculated the slope based on the inverts you add.
