Hidden calculator in AutoCAD dialogs

Not many AutoCAD users know the keyboard shortcut allowing to evaluate an expression entered in a dialog numeric field.
Since AutoCAD 2006 (sp1) you can use Alt-Enter to evaluate an arithmetic expression entered in any input field in any AutoCAD dialog - both in standard dialogs as DIMSTYLE and in panels like the Properties window.
Just enter an expression like =1/3+2, =sin(0.5), =d2r(60), =myLISPvar+123 and hit the Alt-Enter keyboard shortcut. In AutoCAD 2006 sp0, use the End key instead.
