Re: 43S News

The perhaps only remaining concern might also be typographical, that these arrows don't seem to be easily represented in HTML (so that the community can contribute docs and examples), e,g, like HTML entities. The f and g do, of course. I stand corrected by myself! I must do homework more often! Any...

Re: 43S News

What would be the practical use case for a colour display? Not counting references to coloured shift keys? Only graphics comes to my mind. Is this what we want? Or need? And are we still discussing the 43S as proposed by Walter? BTW, has anyone looked at the HP Prime vs. the DM42 screens in sunlight?

Re: 43S News

Interesting! But maybe only [SHIFT] is really needed, as long as yellow and blue label names never clash - which they don't? Consider [SHIFT]+[LOOP] and [SHIFT]+[TEST] as but one example. You'd still need to locate which button the [LOOP] and [TEST] labels are on, regardless of how you refer to the...

Re: 43S News

Well, I'm still not sure ... I'm going off of the latest information I have, not being sure if there has been a platform definitively committed to at this point. What I have is what you kindly posted: https://forum.swissmicros.com/download/file.php?id=430 And I see colour in the bezel area. Is the ...

Re: 43S News

Though I would agree that simple colored yellow and blue buttons are sufficiently clear for use on the device (or emulator) itself, having [f] and [g] labels on the buttons will make it much easier to document and comment, put into program listings, etc. on which keys to use, for example in this ve...

Re: 43S News

I say redundant clutter. The placement of the shift buttons are consistent with the placement of the labels. No need for arrows. With the exception of the "CATALOG" and "OFF" labels. Though "CATALAG" might be abbreviated to "CAT" which might make room for "OFF" also above the key. Arrows were never...

Re: 43S News

@Walter: Yes, I agree. The principle ... is the thing. From a guiding principle point of view (in the HP tradition at least) ... I am proposing that cleaner and leaner is the way to go. That means colour only. Haven't mentioned anything on arrows. However, I suppose one could posit that they might ...

Re: PDF of DM42 Quick Reference Guide

The company that is hosting the file at the link earlier in this thread is discontinuing their public cloud offering. Therefore, we can expect that the file will no longer be available soon. Since there haven’t been any updates on this topic for a year, I’ll assume that no one is going to be upset ...
