Re: New images dated 180814

Thanks Godwin, I suspected that was the case, but I didn't want to find out the hard way that what I asked would not work. Will update today and report any issues. Looks like the screen shot posted earlier of the 41 Emulator running on a 48 (with variable sized stack digits) inspired the new font ch...

Re: % Character ?

In the classic 42 ALPHA mode, the "%", "Pi" and "E" special characters are entered by pressing the keys where those characters appear on the keyboard. The "E" mentioned here is not the letter E, it's the special character used to express Exponent, which is the key to the right of the [+/-] key.

Re: DM15L - difference between two dates?

So the next questions is of course ... should I splurge on a DM12L or keep using my Singapore made HP 12C until it dies? ;) The DM12L is much faster than older (3-battery or 1-battery) 12Cs, so if you use programs this may be a strong factor to consider. I'm not sure of the relative performance of ...

Re: Photo editing

FYI - Although fairly limited, Paint comes with all versions of Windows and works just fine. How do you get paint to do 1-bit and dithering? Paint does not support dithering (at least not with any control; when you paste something with higher res than the current settings, it sorta does some dither...

When you flash after 3.5, do you erase from the cals USB drive the old files when you next update?..or does updating get rid of the files automatically??? When you update from flash, once the process is complete the .bin file is no longer stored on the flash drive. It appears it is erased once the ...

Re: SDKdemo

but that would require the WP43S key layout to retain the existing ON key location - food for thought Walter? Wasn't every key reassignable? Yes, it's technically possible to, but I was referring to retaining the same physical keys currently in use on the DM42 h/w, but my comment was not correct an...

Re: SDKdemo

Get a pre-built PGM binary: https://github.com/swissmicros/SDKdemo/blob/master/SDKdemo.pgm Thanks Michael. Installs and loads as expected, so now I have 2 calculators in my DM42 h/w and I can easily swap back and forth. For folks that are checking it out, remember to also copy the html help file (i...
