Ah, the HP Quick Calc is HP's flagship calculator?
It shares this characteristic with the HP-42S.

Re: Request for feature: alternate font

Please allow me reminding you: the HP-42 was launched some years after the HP-41C. Guess which font is more progressive? What's the reason for your wish to rewind technical development? Why should anyone choose a font featuring less resolution? Just want to understand... Indeed, solid arguments. Th...

Re: Request for feature: alternate font

Everyone's view is valid, even if it's downright 'wrong'. +1 to your post, but I don't entirely agree with that point. So-called exclusionary opinions are not valid. Thinks like "The only reason is ..." disrespects all other views. And as I said before, it is better to name the advantages...

Re: Request for feature: alternate font

Guys... don't take this stuff so seriously, there is no need for these discussions to get personal; nothing is gained and most readers are turned-off and don't like the back-and-forth jabs. After your first posting in this thread the topic should be from the table for a while instead of this some p...

Re: Request for feature: alternate font

@vgoudreault Your whole post seems to be centered on one person rather than the topic. To answer to this post is nearly impossible, because to often you don't argue with fact than with personal statements and unobjective interpretations. e.g. >So what you want is a LARGER font. How about restricting...

Re: Request for feature: alternate font

The stubbornness and unwillingness to accept the opinions of others is impressive, and thoroughly disheartening in such a community. I don't see real voices against an option in this thread, but bad talk of the original font does not help to get support from the fans of the classic. Try "the n...

Re: Request for feature: alternate font

1) DM42 font size can be changed, and could be made larger No, the Size you showed is the largest for this font on the DM42 and two steps smaller as the DM41X font. 2) Legibility is entirely subjective, personally I find the DM42 much easier to read (but this is what options are for, right?) No, as...

Re: Request for feature: alternate font

There. A better and more suitable font. No, just an empty claim. You may like this font, others don't - that's nothing like "better and more suitable". The new DM42 Font may be a huge improvement compared to the original 42 font (e.g. max higher resolution) but not für the 41. "Your&...

And the same discussion could happen about why the digits on a calculator are set opposite to what they are on a telephone
The model for the pocket calculator was the cash register, for the telephone keypad the rotary dial.
