Re: My dream DM42 display layout

We should also add justification (left/center/right) for each display item. Furthermore if we could generalize the items, not only stack but also memory / flag. True. It would be nice then with one or two extra pages with custom layout to switch between! I know, many will say this is for the DM43, ...

Re: My dream DM42 display layout

@Bob, thanks for the photo. I had no idea! And I see why you held this back. @Hans, I am not offended by anyone here, rather the opposite - it's a good discussion. I don't think I am trying to change a well proven tech here. We are not discussing the functionality of the calc, but rather how it pres...

Re: My dream DM42 display layout

Thanks for your feedback Bob, I'm just throwing out ideas here. Here is the final one I will do - I think some of you may like this. I've used Consolas font with a custom colon and RAD symbol. Also used it on the menu - I think it looks better there because it is narrower and in bold. At the end of ...

Re: My dream DM42 display layout

Thanks Walter,
Do we need that horizontal line?
No, not really.

edit: With that said, the line emphasizes the layout idea of the two different areas, and acts as a visual guide to the "status line". It could also be made half as thick and stippled, making it very subtle:

Re: My dream DM42 display layout

@dlachieze, sure I knew there would be different opinions on this, and I think many are happy with the current display layout, but this large nice display begs to be utilized in the best possible way. The layout presented in this thread is nice but IMHO it doesn’t scale well with a different font an...

Re: My dream DM42 display layout

@jfb9301, yes I also think the stack should be aligned to the top, or actually just stay statically the way the image shows when soft key menu is closed. E.g., if you only want to show X, Y, L, the separator line and X, Y stays fixed. That way, the display becomes even less busy with plenty of space...

Re: My dream DM42 display layout

Thanks for the feedback, however I am a little baffled by the answers because most of you are actually critizing the very reason for having a larger screen to begin with. In fact, my attempt was to make the screen less busy by focusing on the important stuff (x and y regs), while still providing use...

My dream DM42 display layout

DM42LAYOUT.png I love the vintage HP font (shift F5) and that it is in different sizes too, but the optimal for me would be more like the beta version had it with the lower area using a large easy-to-read font, whereas the other registers had smaller font. Also, the "status line" is better placed h...
