I found that the "obelus" division symbol doesn't do division in SpeedCrunch, but the forward and back slashes work as expected.

Here's a screenshot showing this unexpected behavior.

I believe that SpeedCrunch doesn't recognize "÷" and ignores it, so "1÷1" is "11", "2÷1" is "21", etc.

Hi, Mike. I assume you are using version 0.12.
The current development branch (what will become version 1.0) does support the obelus and other goodies. Please refer to https://bitbucket.org/heldercorreia/speedcrunch/issues/665/no-support-for-and

To get acquainted with all new feature and bugfixes for the next version, please refer to https://bitbucket.org/heldercorreia/speedcrunch/issues?milestone=1.0

If you'd like to check out the current state, we provide builds
a) for Windows
b) for Linux

That is correct, in your version.
