    since upgrading to high sierra, my sidebar calculator shows 2.166,9, no matter how many times i press AC or C. I tried to delete and add the calculator, the result is the same. If i use the calculator it works, but as soon as recall notification center the number is back.

    I've had issues with Calc, Cal, and iTunes on the notifications center, so you're not alone.

    ha, thought it was fixed finally (it just showed '0' 3 times in a row). but 4th time opening NC, and... an old number i added up to is back; this has been so thru most of the betas, so... still not fixed.

    sigh, was just gonna post this as fixed in PB5, when... the same old number popped up (in both my macs).

    what's up with apple and calculator apps? the ios11 one is seriously buggy, and so's the HS notification center one. and neither one is fixed yet...

    I opened a radar about this quite a while back and it's marked as a duplicate of another radar that's still open (34089724), so it seems a fix is pending, sadly. I use the calculator in the Today panel a lot, so it's very annoying. It's hard to believe that Apple wouldn't have data on how many people use the calculator on macOS and iOS, and how many people bugs in these apps therefore impact, but here we are.

    If anyone wants to add their own report, make sure you reference radar 34089724 so it’s correctly added to the existing original case.

    Yup, since the first time I saw the issue (the first High Sierra beta).

    Try this, it worked for me.
    Go to folder "~/Library/Containers/com.apple.ncplugin.calculator/Data/Library/Preferences" and remove the file "com.apple.ncplugin.calculator.plist"
