1. I like it too!1. I love the new look -- it's really convenient that it adds up the percentages as you go, and you don't need to click to see results. I also like the longevity bit.
2. What does "stable" mean? For most oils, it seems to be the same as "longevity", i.e., the sum of palmitic and stearic. However, for castor oil, I notice that it says longevity:0 and stable: 90.
3. I like the Expand option under the Oils. Would it be possible to keep the header fixed? If I scroll down, I cannot see the header.
4. Under Select recipe units of measure, do we really need the first line? I don't know anyone actually adds oils by weight and builds the recipe; I'm guessing everyone uses a percentage?
5. Anyway, if I do choose "grams" in the first line, it correctly shows the total in grams but still displays the unit for each oil as % -- see screen shot.

6. This one is a Chemistry question -- wondering if someone (@DeeAnna, @SaltedFig, anyone else?) can suggest a way for it to be incorporated into the calculator. What causes olive and castor oils to form hard bars after cure (even though the numbers here give them 0 and 17 respectively), and is there any way to reflect this in the calculator?
2. Asking the developer to answer- as I have no idea.
3. Asking about this as well.
4. I sometimes will use amounts, as I might only have 17 ounces of olive oil I want to use up, but still look at the percentages.
6. For an expert!
