Re: Wishes for next Updates

cesar,

Try going to Setup -> Settings -> (X) Slow Auto-repeat

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.5 available

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.5 available

The update itself went without trouble, but the DM42 crashed during the saving of the state file, which effectively erased everything I have ever done.

Re: Credit card sized models

While we’re on the topic of the Order page, regarding the DM42, there is no such word as “orientated.”

This is a followup to this issue. I received a new replacement faceplate from Michael (thank you), and the problem persists. After removing the old faceplate and throughly cleaning the case surface around the keys, I installed the new faceplate and applied downward pressure along all the seams with ...
