But CALCULATE(+1+1) fails, as does plain old CALCULATE(+1).
Hardly a show-stopper; easy to work around. But…Why???
Edited to add:
Checking further, I see that the leading plus sign seems to be rejected in other (all?) calculation contexts, including %Calculate% and Set Variable to Calculation.
And edited again to add:
I think I may have found the bottom of the rabbit hole: "+" can only be used as a binary operator, not as a unary sign. Whereas "-" may be used as either. Hence:
CALCULATE(1--1) is OK (and even CALCULATE(1------1)) but not CALCULATE(1++1).
With that understanding, I guess it all makes sense, and even explicitly documented at manual:Calculations [Keyboard Maestro Wiki]
