Re: Matrix Viewer

Upper/lower case is no issue of course, that’s not what I meant by ‘topaligned’. It’s just that a font of n pixels occupies the top n pixels, not the bottom n. And sub- and superscript is similar: just swap the two adjustments? (The Y-adjustment for a bottom-aligned subscript is the negative of the...

Re: Matrix Viewer

Werner, I would like to modify my routines to use your UFL matrix. That way only one font matrix for everyone. But I have some questions/comments: 1. It sounds like your final UFL matrix will have four font sizes. That would be fantastic. 2. I'm not sure about having the UFL matrix "top aligned". By...

Re: Matrix Viewer

Hi Bill, Yes I realised there’s no easy way of copying a matrix to another state file, but I wanted to make it easy to take a peek. You don’t need UFL though, well not for now, I just put the digit fonts into DF, but the problem remains of course. One of my goals is to have UFL hold all 4 fonts, an...

Re: Matrix Viewer

Werner, Could you post the raw file of the program that generates the "UFL" font file? I see this is a variation of the file I had done with a middle size font added for the digits 0-9. Also, what does the letters "UFL" stand for? Assume the "F" is for FONT. It's too bad that we can't save/load a Ma...

What else should I try?
Update your DM42 to the in just published "release candidate" version 3.17, then it will work. I had the same problem before that.
Just did the update and all is good.

Thanks.

Re: Matrix Viewer

I'm having a problem getting the state file to load. I get the message " State File Corrupt" I've downloaded it several times, used several programs to upzip it, done byte compares on the the original file versus what's on the DM42, did a fat check and reformat on the calculator. Other state files I...

Re: Leather Case for DM42

Or if you want to delve even deeper into nerd territory and have a 3D printer, here is a link to a hard case that I designed for the DM42: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3529736 I like the looks of the case you created. I was able to adapt the ASTECH Hard Case to the DM42. See my post in the fol...

Re: Thermal Paper?

Finally, it is "normal" for output to fade considerably, even after only a couple months, if the listings are left out and exposed to light. To preserve them, keep them in a file, or book, etc. to preserve the printout. I assume that you are preserving them so that you can look at them in the futur...

Re: 3D printed DM42 stand

The ASTECH case is fantastic. Perfect for protection in the field. Here's a closeup of the Hinge assembly. There are two pins that hold it together. Hinge.jpg The case is slightly too wide for the DM42 to fit. I was able to get a nice fit by cutting two lengths of the soft fabric side of Velcro. Put...
