What I like about the discussion, is that it provoked thoughts and discussion of how it actually works and challenged if it should change.
And THAT is something I value highly, and one of the reasons I really enjoy this thread.

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

I think the CLR / DROP discussion can be put to rest. The lack of symmetry I felt in the first place vs. the [ENTER] key does serve well as a safety measure against undesired consequences by thoughtlessly pressing [<-] too many times, which is as correctly pointed out something that users prone to s...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

4. If I take the argument to the logical conclusion: In your proposal, where the steps are: a. clear X b. for every [<-] directly after that, DROP. The question arises whether your proposal needs a 0 in X? Do you need CLX at all? Why not drop on each [<-]? This is correct, and I think you have foun...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

But isn't it true that double-clicking [<-] owes its existence to the fact that single-click becomes NOP when X is empty? It is just this that I find a bit asymmetrical, and not as harmonious as it could have been. Don't get me wrong, I am not arguing against double-clicking [<-], although I guess I...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Re. the double-click DROP behavior of the [->] key: This came about because two consecutive single clicks didn't do a DROP, right? Yes. WP43S and DM42 and HP42S all have just single functionality on the [<-] key, i.e. two consecutive presses will simply clear X twice. I do not know where the concep...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Exactly as the doctor ordered, Jaymos! :-) Is where a way to let the HOME menus be defined by configuration files? That way all users could have their own favourite setup. And might the HOME menus also be used as custom layouts from programs (replacing the original ones as long as the program is run...

I think it needs a text table to list all the special cases.
A dedicated table listing all of them would be nice! :)

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

... I think I will really like it. Glad to hear that, Jaymos! :-) I think of the double-click, triple-click, long-press behaviors that you have added as easter eggy or bonus features. Those who don't want to use them need not - they can go happily about their usual, single-click, everything is as p...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Double-click is of course an interesting and proven concept, albeit somewhat prone to misexecution, and not easily aborted in flight. Or undone after, which is equally true for both, but perhaps more relevant when abort is not possible. What I was aiming for is this: Since long pressing and double-c...
