Re: 43S News

Ok, for more roasting I will admit I never even really understood the need for a % function on a 'scientific' calc. If somebody wants to add 17,5% to 1234, (s)he can do easily via 1234 [ENTER] 1.175 [x]. Done. Ditto. The only one I find useful is %CH (Δ%). If my calculating needs were limited to my...

Re: 43S News

%T returns - according to my information - 100 x/y. If this is true then it's a challenge for me to understand the use of this function. Why not just use x/y and do the trivial rest mentally? What do I miss? %T preserves T, Z, and Y. This is the first thing I assign on the keyboard of any (non-fina...

Re: Store and Recall extra steps

For the clear command you requested, just make this tiny program:

LBL "CLAL"
CLRG
CLST
END

Then you can just XEQ CLAL.

Re: Encoder/decoder

That's something we Windows users aren't used to. We like choosing files from dialog boxes. Not this Windows user. 8-) Keyboard shortcuts are easier, faster and not as prone to oops. And even if you do somehow oops, Ctrl-Z fixes that too. My fingers have done this for so long, I sometimes have to l...

That's usefu...

Installed the WP43S_StandardFont.ttf font file & confirmed it is installed properly 3. Install...

Re: 43S News

And I see colour in the bezel area. Is the colour generated by the screen ... or is it printed on a 'bezel'? You are in a much better position than I to to advise ... thank you in advance. :) The yellow and blue bars are on the bezel only to correlate/highlight the lines of displayed functions with...

Re: 43S News

Interesting! But maybe only [SHIFT] is really needed, as long as yellow and blue label names never clash - which they don't? Consider [SHIFT]+[LOOP] and [SHIFT]+[TEST] as but one example. You'd still need to locate which button the [LOOP] and [TEST] labels are on, regardless of how you refer to the...
