Points Box on Game Tab

In version 1 you could just click in this box and enter the equation...now you MUST go into the other screen... can we have the ability again to simply enter the equation on the game tab without the extra step.

The reason is pretty simple: it's a matter of space and aesthetics.  Formulas can be pretty complex.  The dialog window gives an input box that allows for multiple lines, to make editing your formula a little easier.  There's only space on the main screen for a single-line input.  If one were allowed to edit the same formula on both the main screen and the dialog, the line feeds would be lost, and hence formatting a formula would be pointless.

I suppose some room *could* be stolen from the Notes section.  I've put a note on the to-do list to look into this.
