Copying lines & answers as an image

A super quick way of sharing calculations is as an image.
Select some lines and go Edit > Copy > Copy Lines & Answers as image. This will place an image onto the clipboard that you can then paste into Messages, Mail, etc.

System-wide Soulver services

You can actually use Soulver to evaluate text anywhere in macOS via services. Simply highlight some text anywhere, right click and choose Services > Calculate with Soulver. There are three services: one calculates and copies the result to the clipboard, one replaces the input with the result, and one appends the result.
