Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

If you switch off "Num Lock", "Caps Lock" falls back to ON ('A'), no matter if it was OFF ('a') before. "Num Lock" can be switched on and off with f(COS) alone, but also with the triple click of Shift. Using the f[Up] and f[Dn] it is clear that 'N' first falls back to ...

The phase of closest approach lasts from Dec. 17 to 25, cul...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

There is no recession from our food critic yet, so a few remarks already from me. I think the status display works very well. Yes, if there is no contradiction, I consider the status display as very well done, no room for improvement. If you switch off "Num Lock", "Caps Lock" fal...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

I still like the shifting of superscript and subscript to g[Up] and g[Dn], latched, still. I hope we will not hinder any other application in the long run. A question: Is HOME supported and needed in AIM? Otherwise we could use additional triple click for "Num Lock" on/off. I see no compel...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

... How does it sound? ... I would cope with it. I'm not sure yet if everyone can handle it. Pudding proof, why not. I think if Caps/Num Lock is changed, subscript/superscript should also be deleted. Probably the state of Caps/Num Lock should not be saved persistently, but always start with Caps Lo...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

"Caps Lock" on = f[Up] "Caps Lock" off / "Num Lock" off = f[Dn] "Num Lock" on = f [ENTER] Shift digits up = g[up] subscripts = g[Dn] No f- positions needed on the first three lines. Or provide this ALPHA mode as a special mode in parallel to the more WP43S-typ...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

To illustrate what is currently under discussion, here is the current keyboard sequence to type "Pi^ 42 ": [ 7 ] f(SIN) [Rv] ... Just for comparison, the sequence on the 43S looks like this: [down] g( 8 ) g( - ) [down] g(FN2) f(EEX) f( 4 ) f(EEX) f( 2 ) FWIW. Confirmed. The idea was to sh...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Just a thought fart, probably not worth a closer look. But to relieve the pressure, I'll let him out of here. I don't consider it realistic to create a foil for the backside of the DM42 to show the few symbols on the f-position for faster accessible. I think these symbols all belong in the menu aMAT...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

... f[X<>Y] already produces the <> arrows ... This is true, of course. But this also means that you actually need a foil for the back of the DM42 case with the legend of the ALPHA keyboard. aINTL can be found in two positions, but this does not hurt. #' and '><' can only be found on an f-key posit...
