Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

UNIT removed from g[5]. Left BLANK. INFO g[7] swapped with VIEW g[.]. How are these changes? Comments? For the moment I would retain (additional?) UNIT at g[ 5 ]. VIEW is a function and not a menu. I think that was the reason why VIEW found its position on g[ 0 ] respectively g[ . ]. Probably most ...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

The menu ASN could be called CST (CUSTOM), ASSIGN could become ASN again. I agree with the concept but there may be more complications with layout 2, where we use the physical yellow 'CUSTOM' label to imply 'USER' mode. On Layout2 then, ASN should not be CST because of the confusion with the CUSTOM...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

I'm thinking out loud again. Aren't the functions in CLK more CONV functions? Can "s->year" and "year->s" from UNIT also go to CONV? So at the moment my impression is that you could do without CLK, but should keep UNIT directly on a key. The menu ASN could be called CST (CUSTOM), ASSIGN could become...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

... So you could keep ALPHA (g[ 4 ]) or ASN (g[ 1 ]) free until a new menu comes up which is still looking for a place. EDIT: Or CFG, but does it need this menu directly on a key? My ASN calls my ASN menu. This will be different from 43S’s effort for ASSIGN. I like our way of providing packages for...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Should be Layout 1B, of course. UNIT inside CONV, why not. Concerning aSTR, we have seen on several occasions that it has little to do with ALPHA mode but more with PRGM. So I would not move aSTR away from g[ - ] yet. So you could keep ALPHA (g[ 4 ]) or ASN (g[ 1 ]) free until a new menu comes up wh...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

The item g[CLK] seems to have little to do with "clock". The main menu has date and time related items. Would it be better to name it "TIM" or "TIME"? Ideas? Layout 1A: You could now exchange BASE (g[1]) and CLK (g[4]). Then BASE, BITS and INTS are on the same row. I haven't found a better abbrevia...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

On the DM42 Layout 2 (for the DM42), the BASE menu and SAVE commands have previously been allocated, therefore the g[sqrt] position is now open and available for a sensible change. I was contemplating putting factorial (x!) back on the L2 keyboard in this position. Either way, the new label should ...

Re: Calculate closest fraction or sqrt...

For whatever reason, the QPI program is dependent on the set DISP. Therefore I have configured FIX 06 as default.

Re: Non-numeric stuff in calculations

I would even expand on the question a little. Is it correct that a calculator returns the reciprocal of +/-0 as infinity? Well, I can still imagine this (, the result, not infinity). But can the result infinity be used in another calculation? Specifically, is it correct that now the reciprocal of in...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

The short twice press to get the g button ... Apologies if I don't understand you correctly, but I was not suggesting to change the original, three-state shift key cycle which I suggested way back in another thread. I am totally happy with how that has played out. My mistake, I naturally meant pres...
