I'm not into Inkscape's code but AFAIU things are not so simple as you say.
When you hit enter into the textual field, how can the exact original
coordinate be extracted from the mathematical string that you are feeding to
Yes, it's more complicated than just parsing the mathematical string,
though provides more precise results.
If one of the values is the rounded version of the exact original
value, it's mapped to the original value in calculations.
Also, when I hit enter I assume that I'm inputting what I see,
not what the
program thinks while showing me something different.
So you accept the rounding errors.
I don't agree that this should be discussed in a different thread
the problem wouldn't even exist without what's in this thread.
That's wrong. The problem already exists today. You can already enter
calculations into those fields.
And it applies to all fields allowing calculations, so it's a broader issue.
