Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

It's become extremely quiet here. I hope very much that I did not write anything wrong. Layout 1 and Layout 2, as long as there are two layouts: I think the lines 2 and 3 and column 1 are very good, the variants with '#' on [g][1/x]. And of course I also find line 4 very successful, in both variants...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Yup, that seems to be working again. I mean, with the menus in the numeric keypad, there will be certainly more changes. But lines two and three have almost the same clarity as in layout 1. I'm a fan of having COMPEX on [f][ENTER], but on the long line ALPHA isn't so great in layout 1 either. This i...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

I have understood, in the long run you probably won't want to maintain two layouts, not even with #ifdef. I really appreciate that layout 1 and layout 2 are still maintained at the moment. Let's focus on layout 2 and face the facts. For layout 2 to work, lines two and three must work again. EDIT: Wh...

Regarding Dani's request to re-arrange the alpha keys - it is complete now.

You guys can test the alpha mode on the DM42 image now.

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Please excuse my ignorance, Jaco, I have actually not read your current contributions, so I don't know your reasons. I let the triple picture work. Layout 1: I suspect that '#' and BASE are not the same. #' works for me as a function like RCL. So you have a value and specify the new base in a dialog...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

The development of the alternative key layout and all of the discussion about this is very interesting, and has been a lot of work for those directly involved with this. Is there any chance that SwissMicros would manufacture a 43S and a 43C, or would they (as a small company) be stretched too thin ...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

in the 43, the "#" calls the base change direct input screen, which is 100% compatible in function with 42S BASE. The direct input screen looks different at the moment, but I asked Walter in the other forum to change it to have a menu with HEX OCT DEC BIN shortcut menu which will also look like the...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

I don't have the scissors with me, but I have a few remarks from me again. I still have a question about "#", maybe you already answered it, but I am too lazy to look for this answer, this thread has already taken a certain length. Is it the legacy function to make it compatible with the WP34S, or i...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

... My immediate thoughts after starting to try out the DM42 running the WP43C, was that my fingers wanted more of 42S. Muscle memory. I will try fix it up. Even if it is only an alternative compile version if people want to try it on the DM42 - it is easy to make a second layout possibility. Maybe...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

As you guessed, I don't like some things. There's another menu on the third row. It now has some menu/function assignments. Especially VIEW is out of line. For TIMER I have not yet formed an opinion, whether this function needs a key assignment perhaps nevertheless. Sigma- really hurts, even more th...
