Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

-First Q: Does the idea of a fixed HOME menu (in addition to the g[7] key and 3 x shift) appeal? Will it be better? Is there an improvement to this idea? A1: Honestly, it didn't immediately sound appealing, but it might grow on me. :-) I would like to see some examples, and learn a bit more about t...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

And since those archaic letters are not used for more than 1000 years, I don't see a pressing need for them - we also won't include Germanic runes etc. It may be ignorance on my part, but I am not aware of archaic Germanic contributions to math and science rivalling the Greek? You are right. I shou...

Enjoy Reno, I am sure the souped up DM42 (WP43C) will draw attention as it really looks like a DM42 until you switch it on ;-)
I concur! Eagerly awaiting feedback from the HHC... :-)

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

- We could use J (unused) to duplicate Epsilon and the alternate form of epsilon. (ε⍷) I have a feeling that duplicating things on "hard" keys would only confuse my muscle memory. After all, the Greek alphabet has fewer letters than the English, so it shouldn't be a requirement that every key is as...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Re. the Greek letters: I feel we may be at the limit of what the faceplate ca handle already. I also don't see myself having the need to type Greek nearly as much as Latin letters.

Do we need them on the "hard" keys at all?

Just asking...

I think the best offers on the table are still STRNG and/or STR.
I have one more suggestion:

aSTR

where a is the greek alpha. This would clearly make STR understood to be in the alphanumeric string context.

??
Sure would, and also set it apart from STK.

Might also look cool... :-)

You will find the functions under "ALPHA String Operations".

I am not sure if ALPHA in this case is referring to the family of functions, or the alpha register?

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

What are the options though? Fair point. :-) Options therefore are: STRING (too long) STR (too much like STK) STRNG (can work) STRG (can work) I choose STRNG and the result looks like this. Any objections to the summary or the logic? See implementation on Layout 1A. http://cocoon-creations.com/down...
