Re: Faceplate peeling.

Get in touch with Michael at michael@swissmicros.com, he should be able to help (with the key bezel). I'll get in touch with Michael eventually, if it gets worse. No, the calculator does not venture into a lab, just a normal domestic environment. I can live with it as it is, but would be happy to f...

Re: Auto custom

Another almost cosmetic issue, is that when the EXIT key is held down, there is a bit of random information displayed, rather than the usual keypress feedback. But this is of no real consequence.

Re: Auto custom

OK, so a downside is that SST and BST no longer work when testing a program, without pushing shift for each step. The workaround is to use up two assignments in the custom menu for SST and BST. That works fine, and the assignments do not have to use the valuable "front face" assignments of the custo...

Faceplate peeling.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/16_r1Fgv2u_ePoBV0ZGygdQ3y3slV6dsL/view?usp=sharing The black background on the faceplate of my dm42 is slowly peeling off. It started in the bottom left corner and the bald patch is now almost around the EXIT button and approaching the approaching the OFF imprint. I ...

Re: Auto custom

This is superb.
I have been trying to make a key-map, so far without success, to make the unused f3 key go to the custom menu with a single keypress, but this is much better! Thank-you so much. :P

So far no problem, but I will post if any issue comes up.

Re: Auto custom

A link to a file in dropbox, google drive, etc would be great! In the meantime, here is a link to a folder on my google drive, which anyone can edit. Maybe you can drop the file there. After a while, I will only give it viewing permission. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1zGJsTswrmKJGYqembSCF...

Re: Auto custom

Hi Ijubo

I very much like your idea of making the custom menu the default.
However, I do not know how to implement a patch file. :-o . I only know to program HP calculators and bash scripts.
What must I do to actually get the patch to work on my DM42?

Re: Custm menu ambiguity

Thanks for the discussion. The issue came up for me as I have a downloaded program, I forget which, that has a variable called TIME. Of course, the DM42 now has a function called TIME which I find very useful and was taken aback by the erratic results when it was assigned to a menu. It is useful to ...

Yes, it was that kind of thing, although not that exact brand.

Custm menu ambiguity

If I have a variable with the same name as a function and assign the fuction to a custom menu, the menu will recall the variable, rather than execute the function. For example 3 STO SIN ASSIGN FCN SIN CUSTOM SIN will display 3 rather than sin(3). Is this normal hp42 behavior? The manual (p68-69) doe...
