Re: Are the calculators magnet-proof?

There shouldn't be any problem with any modern pocket calculator as long as we talk about static magnetic fields and the calculator isn't moving fast. :mrgreen: Reasons are given in post #2. :geek: And since the calculator back is made of stainless (austhenitic) steel, it won't even start moving fa...

You could use the DM41X and make your own printer rom instead of the included one with different IR commands.
I guess that would do what you want. For the DM42 I don't know a solution.
How do I use the 41X to create a rom?

The manual is online https://www.swissmicros.com/dm41x/doc/dm41x_user_manual/#cst_menu . See p...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Great idea but I don't like the fixed filename. Could their be something like: if I specify a flle name like XXX we can save/load the state of the Calc, including the menu structure. And offcourse selecting the menu file by picking from a filebrowser like it is done on the HP41X?
