Re: Announcment regarding shift-Key Color Wear

I don't have a DM42 to compare, but I was positively surprised by the DM41X keyboard. The key feel is better than my DM15L, and equal to my DM41L. That's great to hear. I have a DM41L and DM16L that I bought around 2015 or 2016, and while they certainly don't compare to a real Voyager, I find them ...

Re: Announcment regarding shift-Key Color Wear

Ooh, improved keyboard feel? That instantly makes me more interested in the 41X... You can get it withe the DM42 as well. I would definitely be willing to consider buying a second DM42 if I end up impressed enough with the 41X keyboard improvements. The one I've got now, I love everything but the k...

Re: Announcment regarding shift-Key Color Wear

My late-2017 DM42 is totally fine as far as the shift key is concerned, but "EXIT" and the down arrow are definitely showing quite a bit of wear.

Re: DM41X

"CONF" sounds like "config" to me, but there's already "SETUP" on the keyboard, so it's anybody's guess what it might be for. Going directly to the module config menu, maybe?

Re: Row Swapping With Nonexistent Rows

It seems one off-by-one error revealed another off-by-one error. ;)

Re: Row Swapping With Nonexistent Rows

I just tested this on my 42S, and the R<>R step fails with "Dimension Error". Free42 should ideally do the same dimension checking, then.

Re: "Enter" Key

I also heartily recommend flexing the keys if you find them too stiff, but be very careful that you don't go overboard and break any of the legs. A tiny bit of epoxy applied with a toothpick can fix a single broken leg, but it will be very difficult to get the key positioned correctly if you break i...

Re: "Enter" Key

This is a common issue, at least with the early units. Mine is serial number 260, so no doubt from the same batch as yours. I can't find the post on here, but the easy way to fix it is to open up the calculator, cut two or three small strips from the gummed portion of a Post-It note, and stick them ...

I installed the latest firmware and seem to have no more bouncing issues... so far! Others ?
Seems like it's working well so far. If I try really hard, I can press a key fast enough that it ignores the second press. So it seems like the cool-off time is set to a good value.
