The InchPro calculator has a very simple logic. All the data for the calculation are entered in the left field and all the results you obtain in the right field. To obtain the correct result you need carefully to choose the name of units from list under the left input and under right input fields (in other words - left and right combo boxes) and press the button "Convert Units!".

Each field on the dialog box, have been numbered via red numbers from 1 to 10. Consider all the numbers.
All the fractional values in field 1 should be entered as a decimal number. Sign separator for fractional numbers is dot (example 2.5 or 22.25 or 222.225). The names of units in fields 3 and 4 are completely equivalent and you can convert any measurement units between them from the following list:
If the left margin you entered the wrong value in the right field you will get the result in the form of inscriptions: "Error number!". You can adjust the value in the left field (red color - 1) or click the button "Clean Fields" (red color 5) and recalculate result.
