Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

I would really like input from everyone as to the idea of shaded menu items as opposed to underlined. I prefer the shaded menu choices as compared to underlined. The overall appearance, for me, is much less cluttered and therefor more clear. It's possible I've been influenced by years of using a 42...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.15

The DM42 program did not change, the fix was in DMCP, which did change from 3.14 to 3.15.

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.14 / DM42-3.14

So instead of the first soft menu entry cycling between "M>D>Y", "D>Y>M" and "Y>M>D" I would prefer cycling it through "MDY", "DMY" and "YMD". I don’t think that when you have only 3 options, showing the next one by it’s initial is useful. Just pressing the soft key until you get the date format yo...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.14 / DM42-3.14

Can you please re-issue this update with the newest version 2.4.2 of Free42, or do we have to wait another four months to get the latest version of Free42 ? I'm curious - which features in Free42 2.3.x and 2.4.x are so compelling that a couple hours into this version of DM42 you're looking for the ...

Re: 43S News

Ok, for more roasting I will admit I never even really understood the need for a % function on a 'scientific' calc. If somebody wants to add 17,5% to 1234, (s)he can do easily via 1234 [ENTER] 1.175 [x]. Done. Ditto. The only one I find useful is %CH (Δ%). If my calculating needs were limited to my...

Re: 43S News

%T returns - according to my information - 100 x/y. If this is true then it's a challenge for me to understand the use of this function. Why not just use x/y and do the trivial rest mentally? What do I miss? %T preserves T, Z, and Y. This is the first thing I assign on the keyboard of any (non-fina...

Re: Store and Recall extra steps

For the clear command you requested, just make this tiny program:

LBL "CLAL"
CLRG
CLST
END

Then you can just XEQ CLAL.

Re: Encoder/decoder

That's something we Windows users aren't used to. We like choosing files from dialog boxes. Not this Windows user. 8-) Keyboard shortcuts are easier, faster and not as prone to oops. And even if you do somehow oops, Ctrl-Z fixes that too. My fingers have done this for so long, I sometimes have to l...
