Automatic insertion of "ans" variable

Create issue
Issue #389 closed
Former user created an issue

Originally reported on Google Code with ID 389

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1.  enter calculation
2.  begin new calculation with negative sign

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
speedcrunch inserts the "ans" variable automatically

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
.10.1, win7 

Please provide any additional information below.
I'd like it if this was an option, as i often do separate calculations that begin with
leading negative signs, and it's a slight inconvenience to have to delete the 'ans'
variable, although i can see where it would benefit some people.

    I don't have a setting for automatic result reuse.

    I found a workaround for this in 0.10.1:  Use the minus button on speedcrunch's on-screen
    keypad, and it won't insert "ans" before the minus sign.  That means this bug affects
    only keyboard entry.
