Eric , you said:

make the edit field for entering a sequence 2-3 rows high so I can see 
all my input

me:  but you should almost never look up so many terms!

the optimal way to search is to leave off the first term or two,
and then give it the next 10 or so terms

the example i give,

1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 23, 47, 106, 235

is about right, and the window allows you to put
about twice that much on one line

if you enter too many terms you stand a good chance
of missing your sequence (because you probably
have more terms than i do)

that's why i deliberately made that window the size it is
