Re: Useful Content for the "Ultimative OFFIMG"

I’m amazed by the work done on these tiny periodic tables. Can any one recommend a good source for Fresnel lenses for my DM42?

Re: SETUP > Settings > Stack Font Sizes > Font Size Offset ??

If this is working the way it is intended, what are the positive "Font Size Offsets" good for? What did I miss? According to the "Stack Font Sizes" section in the DM42 User Manual , the offset (positive or negative) is specified vs. the current font size selected by the F6 / Shift F6 keys. If you h...

Re: 43S News

Just FYI, going back to the origin of the “Function NULL” on the 41C, the HP 41C manual in the first section “HP-41C Fundamentals” states: Preview and Null Function Preview . When an HP-41 C function key is pressed, the name of the function to be executed appears briefly in the display; when the key...

Re: 43S News

Hi Jaymos & H2X, your discussion about alternate keyboard layouts and interface are interesting but they may deserve a dedicated thread, keeping this one for the official 43S News and bug reports.

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.14 / DM42-3.14

Thanks for this smooth update. I have one comment regarding the new date format setting: I find it quite confusing. YMD format The "SETUP > Settings > Set Date" page had to be altered to allow for the new YMD date format introduced in Free42 2.2. The first soft menu entry cycles between "M>D>Y", "D>...

Re: 43S News

Windows Simulator doesn't work for me I also had troubles to run the Windows Simulator after following the instructions (installing GTK3 Runtime, the font and downloading the different files from github).

Re: 43S News

In term of usability you cannot rely only on colors if you want your product to be usable by color blind people. Colors are great for people that can see them but as mentioned above, you need also another differentiator, either a letter (f / g) or a sign (left arrow / right arrow) that can be listed...

Re: 43S News

The post of March 2018 explains why the operators shall be located left. The post of yesterday explains why the order of operators shall be + - × ÷ . Yes I know, but I just think that the operators order and location should be linked and not dissociated as I expressed in the original poll. All my c...
