Re: buttons that don't register well

PS ... makes one wonder how many others out there (world-wide) are also reluctantly sitting on their money, really wanting to purchase, but ... I am in this situation. I know the response of some members here: only a small percentage of DM42 users has a problem with the keyboard, the vast majority ...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Thanks in advance for any considered views you might be able to share. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1t0pIrkL3qj1PdGHNlydjL7MxvED0YzNV 1. Personally, I don't like borders. But I'm looking at the renderings on my screen, so those who have printed these images have a more valid opinion than me. 2....

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Since I don't own a DM42, I've displayed to scale the last image of the DM43C, along with the DM42 and the HP50g. I'm surprised to see how small the DM 42/43 is. On the DM43C, the labels look really tiny! I'm afraid that the nice renderings posted above will be disappointing on the real calculator. ...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

I would really like input from everyone as to the idea of shaded menu items as opposed to underlined. Here are my comments: 1. I don't like the underlined labels. 2. The color of the background for the shaded labels should be darker. Only a subtle change is necessary to be visible, since these rect...

Re: Feature requests

Since the release of the DM42, I read continuously complaints about the keyboard :(
I don't plan to buy this calculator because of these recurrent and unsolved keyboard problems.
SwissMicros, if you read this: you are losing potential buyers!

Re: DM41 keypad legend separating

I have the same sound with my DM15, but since this is not a tool designed for heavy use, I don't worry for that.
The most important for me is that the keyboard works flawlessly, and it's the case.

Re: 43S News

Am I the only one who doesn't like the look of this? I mean no disrespect, but it looks terribly cluttered to me. My first impression was also a cluttered display. But I think it should be easy to fix: just add a thin line below the annunciators (or use inverted display, like in the DM42), and anot...

Re: Date and time changed by itself (DM41)

I've just updated my DM15 with the V25 firmware, and after that I have seen that the date and time were wrong. I supposed it was related to flashing the firmware, or to the multiple resets I had to do because I had some difficulties with the flashing procedure. But I've not verified the date and tim...

Re: DM42 release date please...

Although not a memeber of the EU, Switzerland is part of theEuropean Single Market. Therefore there are no customs for most goods between Switzerland and the EU. Switzerland is outside the EU, and therefore customs are applicable. I have already purchased Swiss goods and I had to pay import taxes +...
