Re: DM41 is _not_ in the Voyager housing!

@Tom - Aha, gout it. You need to download the new (211129) version of the file, which was rebuilt with the images in the corrected path. The verison dated 211126 indeed does not show the images now. Thanks to Sylvain for his note about the missing captions, it made me go look, and I still had the 21...

Re: DM41 is _not_ in the Voyager housing!

The html versions have been corrected (probably .pdf files too). The images were being blocked in Chrome because it automatically blocks cross-site links under https://, so now fixed. As for why one can't see them in a pdf file (e.g. from here: https://technical.swissmicros.com/dm41x/doc/dm41x_user_...

Re: Bug in editor

Entering a number in a program, temporary “hides” the next instruction. But it shows up again, when pressing the SST/downarrow. This is a long-known bug, which will be fixed in a future update. As you're relatively new here, I'll point out and ask you to please check existing reports before adding ...

Re: DM41 is _not_ in the Voyager housing!

I just checked both the html and PDF versions of the 211126 manual and I CAN see the screen shots, including the one seen in section 3.1.1. I am using Firefox on Windows and it's OK, but using Chrome, they are indeed not visible. Yet another reason to avoid Chrome... Presumably, you can see them the...

Regarding slash: we decided to disallow / in user-created names. It's a pity but causing too much trouble.

Regarding that other character that must not be named here, please look up ISO 80000-2:
The symbol ÷ should not be used.
Good call on both items! Thanks!

Re: 43S News

Another way to solve this issue while keeping the slash allowed in variable names would be to use the obelus symbol "÷" for the division operator as used on many calculators. This way, no more confusion between slash and division. Don't tell Walter about the obelus. ;) LOL... indeed, best...

Re: 43S News

For coherence and consistency as well as for a better user experience, either slash should not be allowed in variable names, or all operator symbols should be allowed in variable names and separated by a space when used as operators. 1 + Consistency and intuitive behavior are important. No doubt &q...

Re: 43S News

I agree, when needing to employ not frequently-used features/variables/etc. it is much better to be able to select them from menus. Walter finds his recommended solution easy to recall and use because it came from his mind, so it's not unusual to see his reluctance to change. Hopefully several folks...
