Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

The short twice press to get the g button ... Apologies if I don't understand you correctly, but I was not suggesting to change the original, three-state shift key cycle which I suggested way back in another thread. I am totally happy with how that has played out. My mistake, I naturally meant pres...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Yeah, well, then I've actually caused too much confusion. I think the existing solution for f and g with the f/g key is absolutely fine, as is double-clicking for DROP. Long pressing is actually reserved for NOP. But intermediate stages of long pressing are of course conceivable and probably don't b...

Re: Building a .pgm on Windows

You're in a mingw64 shell? I had other problems until I could create a PGM, but checksum gives me no problem.

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

I'd like to increase the confusion a little. Currently, [FN] is executed directly, there is no timeout functionality (NOP). So if you will assign the ENTER key into MyMenu with the ASN function, it will behave differently there! ... But since we have opened the box of long pressing - I find the conc...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

... I really like where this is going. Good idea H2X. And well elaborated on Dani. The way it’s written, the first part feels very intuitive, i.e. Normal press for normal business. Keep pressing, and the alternative f[FN] appears. Release if you want that. (#) But the second part above seems confus...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

However, long press might be an option. It is different, and as long as the (visual) feedback is clear, it should be harmless and undoable. Press they key long enough, bring up f. Repeat, bring up g. Repeat again, back to where you started. Yes, a short press will execute [FN]. A long press display...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

... Ideas? ... Now simmering... time-out... Timeout could be the solution. Press [Fx] briefly, wait, is the correct function in the display, continue waiting, after a timeout the function will be executed. If you press [Fx] again within the timeout, the function f[Fx] should be displayed, after a t...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Jaco has written it a few times, and I like to repeat it. Without WP43S there is no WP43C. Maybe there was some right criticism: That's exactly what I don't care of: variations on vapourware. Can't we wait to see the WP43 materialize before pimping it up? On a calculator the performance is an import...

Duly noted. Brainless adaptation of any hype unsurprisingly leads to bad results and side effects.

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

"Can contain irony" Hehe, sorry, I didn't realize you were being tongue-in-cheek. My own bitter experience with Agile in the workplace has destroyed my sense of humor on that topic, I guess. I'll try to fix that. :oops: I also find it confusing how already machine builders think they can save their...
