Re: Request for feature: alternate font

Now the real important thing: since the DM42 already is a multi-font device, when could we expect it to include the 41 font? :mrgreen: 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 t...

Re: Request for feature: alternate font

... there is absolutely zero solid argument what-so-ever for making a DM42-style font available as an option to DM41X users. Is this what you wanted to write? Please read aloud. No, this is an unfortunate typo, but hopefully someone reading the rest of my post would understand that. Additionally, w...

Re: Request for feature: alternate font

Before a wave of reinventions of the wheel will rise and wash the coast please do as follows:
  1. Start your WP43S simulator or your DM42 reflashed with WP43S.
  2. Press [g] + [1/x] opening alpha.FN.
  3. Press [g] + the leftmost menu key opening FBR. Browse and enjoy.

Re: 43S News

There is a chapter 'Layouting' in the WP43S Reference Manual, starting on p. B-19. It contains a short discussion of your topic.

Regarding configuration, please see Section 6 of the WP43S Owner's Manual.

Generally, these manuals are your friends -- there's a lot of information in them. 8-)

Re: 43S News

Yes, in principle. But the 43S was basically thought as an advanced WP 34 S featuring a display allowing for menus. The WP 34 S was meant as an advancement of the HP-42S (and HP-16C) but was limited by the hardware of the HP-20b/30b. Roots and history of the WP 34 S can be found elsewhere (~2008 - 2...

Re: 43S News

... noticed that maybe a new model (DM43) is coming. Do you have a planned release date because depending on that I may wait for that instead. In addition to ctrclckws' statement: WP43S is a hobbyists's project, thus there are no planned dates. What's available so far: calculating with integers, an...

Re: 43S News

I read what you quoted from the HP-41C. You will get the same from the WP43S: Whenever you press a key, its current assignment will be displayed (in USER mode, this may deviate from what is printed on the keyboard). When you release it, this function will be executed. Holding it down for more than 1...
