and click on the "select saved calculator" dropdown menu
in the toolbar (see example below) and select your previously saved
calculator from the list.

Q. Do calculators save data automatically?
A. No, you will need to click on the "Save" icon if you wish to

Q. Why can't I see your calculators on my iPad or iPhone?
A. This calculator was built using Flash at a time when Flash
was accessible to the majority of internet users. Since then, iPads
and iPhones have become very popular and they do not support Flash
files. The MoneySmart team are recreating all our calculators in a
format that will be usable on all devices. Unfortunately, this
process will take a while, so stay tuned!
Q. Are there advanced settings I can change?
A. Yes, within the calculators that you can save, there are some
defaults and assumptions that you can adjust as required. These can
be found within the "How it works" or "Settings" sections.
