Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Sigma-minus seems an obvious contender, if the space is available. Is the rightmost key still also up for grabs? I want to move pi to FN6 which makes available the reconfigurable top left FN1. That means I drop the x√y which is currently there. What is your idea for FN6? I had x! in mind because Ni...

... I had no time yet for the cursor key UP/DN bug. Later.

There is also a problem here if Double Click is called as the first action in a menu, e.g. in the CFG menu the function ENGOVR, which is on F6. If you first scroll through all windows with UP, Double Click works.

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

One more bug, this time with "tick buttons". If I start the firmware from the DMCP Load Program option, the default settings include triple-press of shift bringing up the HOME menu, and a line in the menu indicating the selected row when SHIFT is pressed. But if I go into the CFG menu in which thes...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

ASN K.PK ASN A.PK ASN KPAC Dropped PAC. And KPC. Raised K.PK. Added A.PK. ASN K.PK is high due to external support. ASN A.PK is held equally high by me at the moment due to the repeating of the “A”. Almost easier on the eye. Almost alliteration. Template. I vote for anything with a template. assign...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

..., I support the proposal to add the extended functionality of SHOW to the VIEW function, which would relieve SHOW of the need to scroll through the numeric registers. 8-) The layout police I have now for testing purposes separated the new SHOW and the OLD show functions. The old one does not hav...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

What do you mean with [CL X /A]? I have removed CLSTK from F6 because I added CLSTK to the long press CLR, and I wanted the top part of the calculator for more direct math. ... are in NIM you can't call CLX/A just like that ( on the HP-41C this function is on f[BSP]). I had thought that if F6 is fr...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

As for the "Y" and "N" being white, I picked up right away why as an English speaking native, just as Sylvain would have if the "O" and "N" were white, the "S" and "N" for Massimo, etc. Nice use of color tones, something not done often enough. Interesting comment. I generally do not "iconise" every...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

I just want to point out, for the record and any potential readers who are put off by it, that the only thing that really has to be learned about the yellow [SHIFT] key on the WP43C is the following fundamental cycle: One normal press to activate the f shift mode. One normal press to activate the g...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

The Shift key is in good hands there, it belongs there, the whole thing is thought through to the end. :mrgreen: So thought I, right until I became aware of the USER mode with the S style shifts... Are they still warranted? Was my guess about layout compatibility correct? Am I missing something? I ...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

This does however render the original shift key redundant while in this USER mode. This begs the question if the original shift key shold be eligible for other interesting assignments while being relieved of its primary responsibility. Of course, there must be a sure-fire way to exit that USER mode...
