# Thread: Improvement To Desmos API (Embedded Live Calculators)

1. Hello MHB!

Up until now, when you create a live Desmos Calculator, the only things saved are your viewport dimensions and expressions. We are pleased to announce that now the complete state of your calculator is saved and retrieved. This includes, but is not limited to graph colors, styles, point labels, grid settings, slider settings, etc. And of course, we have maintained backward compatibility with the old style of saving calculators so they will all continue to function as before (no broken posts).

Enjoy!

3. I like it!

My observations:
1. It seems to be much snappier than before.
2. It allows for fine control by editing the result, changing e.g. the viewport.
3. The formulas are simply $\LaTeX$ allowing for easy copy and paste.
4. We can change the colors to colors that Desmos itself does not offer.
