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...

I think we agree to disagree (MATRIX only used during programming??).

Re: May 2021 Speculations

Newbie to this forum. I am Eddie W. Shore from the MoHPC forum. I am thinking that the next calculator would be on the lines of the HP 25C or HP 45. Whatever the model is, I look forward to what SwissMicros does next. :D ... It could be the HP 25C, but not the HP 45, because the latter is not keyst...

Re: Keyboard template

Please note that is a classical CAD drawing - meaning the dimensioning doesn't make sense in real life. If you want to make an overlay, you will need a piece of flat material 89.5mm long and 72,5 mm wide. Furthermore, some dimensions are overdetermined. And following old tradition, no tolerances are...

Re: Keyboard template

That inter-key distance (IKD) on the top four rows of keys can be calculated easily: Key width is 7.7, overall width is 70.5, distance to the edge is 2.65. So IKD = ( 70,5 - 6 x 7.7 - 2 x 2.65 ) / 5 = 3.8 mm. And the width of the enter key is hence 2 x 7.7 + 3.8 = 19.2 mm.

Re: 43S News

@NYC41: I concur with your observations. Low picture quality is due to draft state. And the layout on that page has to be updated, of course. So I have to admit my tip wasn't a very thoughtful one. About your questions: As you wrote, it makes sense for operator keys. Since you can reassign almost ev...

Re: 43S News

That user shall learn about short integers before pressing buttons (s)he doesn't understand. Garbage in, garbage out. At least read the OM before stumbling through unknown areas. :mrgreen: Do you really think you can attract future users with such comments? I doubt it. Please: There is an WP43S Own...

@NYC41: Please take p. B-35 of the Reference Manual (it's the page before last page). Print it, cut it, and you should have what you want.
