It's even better if you go over all the cut edges of the cardboard with a black marker. Of course, with a blue and a yellow one for the shift keys.
What a great idea, thanks!

Re: Keyboard template

Thanks for pointing out the key_overlay_dm42.pdf. I read it and it is missing a few measurements, most critically the inter-key distance on the top four rows of keys. The width and height of those keys is shown (left-most column for width, and the row spacing is shown for all rows). If this is provi...

Re: 43S News

@NYC41: Please take p. B-35 of the Reference Manual (it's the page before last page). Print it, cut it, and you should have what you want. @akaTB: Thanks for the Inkscape recommendation. I ended up using Illustrator anyway because I know it, but downloaded it to investigate for the future. @Walter,...

Re: 43S News

I'm trying to print the WP43S overlay to put on my DM calculator, but just don't know how to do it with SVG files. I am opening the SVG in Adobe Illustrator (current version), but it gives me errors on Calibri and Cambria Math fonts: "Certain alternate glyphs are not available in this version o...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Interesting. I imagine a "build and automatically split into PGM and QSPI" would be a nice improvement to the toolchain. I don't know enough about the architecture to help - but I did download the datasheet and manuals for the STM chip last week on the random thought that maybe I could get...

Both DM42 and DM41X should be equally suited for reflashing.
In this case another DM42 makes more sense since it is cheaper. (Why is it cheaper...? Hm.) And I will get an upgraded hardware version over my beta version. Thanks. It is not on Amazon US right now it seems...

Re: WP 43S Pilot Run (Poll!)

To Walter's point about usage and reports, I have followed this story with interest (see my +1 a while ago). I have not put the firmware on my devices because of usability concerns, primarily that the keys and overlay do not match what is on the calculator. I thought I saw printable versions at one ...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Thanks for the explanation, Jaymos. I have loaded the 105 and will try it. In the meantime, though, there is a minor problem. Newly loaded your software and fresh from a reset, I did Yellow-+ (standard DM42 key names), and got the attached error. C43 L1: C43 template C43L1_105, Apr 25 2021 Program l...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Not sure if it is useful, but thought I would mention I loaded C43L42_103 to my beta DM42 without a problem, from DMCP 3.21 and DM42 3.19 (obviously the latter is gone). At boot time it says Program Loaded WP43C but Version 0.1 (not expected). I did not see an L42 version of the 105 just posted abov...

Re: WP 43S Pilot Run (Poll!)

> can support our work already today Indeed, thanks for pointing that out (and I did read about it on the site and the WP43C variant). Unfortunately, during a house move my DM42 has been misplaced, and still have not found it. :( I did order the new final 41X and may try the 43S code on there in due...
