You may select the base conversion units from a list or type them. When typing, the converter has an auto completion feature that keys in the relevant unit. You can select units using either their full names or abbreviations. Once the appropriate unit is highlighted, select it by pressing enter. Alternatively, you may press the tab key to select the unit and move to the next entry field.
You can filter and quickly search through the unit list using the Unit Finder function.
The program allows you to combine units with “*” and “/” operators, and you can group the denominators with parenthesis. If you want to re-use a combination that you had used recently, you can pick it from a menu instead of re-typing.
ConvertAll works in both directions, which means that you can enter numbers in either the ‘From’ or ‘To’ field. You can even use basic mathematical expressions instead of numbers.
Although the graphic user interface makes it easy for anyone with basic computer knowledge to use the software, you may also resort to the command line option.
ConvertAll comes with more than 500 units, and you can add others. You may change default settings by clicking the Options button and making necessary adjustments.
ConvertAll 0.8.0 Change Log :
- Added a separate base conversion dialog to convert between different base numbering systems. It converts from/to decimal, hexadecimal, octal and binary bases.
- Added a separate fraction conversion dialog to convert from decimal to fractional numbers. It provides a list of fractions in order of increasing accuracy.
- A GUI font selection button was added to the Options dialog. This allows larger fonts to be used for high resolution displays.
- A new GUI color setting dialog was added to the Options dialog. It allows a dark theme to be selected, or colors can be selected individually.
