Re: 43S Alternative key layout

Possible way to go with Menu Keys ... that is visually direct, easy to identify, clean, and more importantly ... uncluttered. The 43 already is in that sweet spot, functionally speaking. Or as said: "a bit of everything is the magic." ... and the layouts with bordered boxes actually both have a bla...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

DM42 dimensions: I used my calliper vernier, but the results are not 100% because it is difficult to measure with the buttons in the way. I do not want to take apart the keyboard now, but that is the obvious thing someone must do to get 100% results. (edited to add rev1 dimension) Note revision 1 w...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

... Just to clarify: You are using the Layout2. Do you specifically want Layout 2, because layout 2 is meant for label-less operation. Layout1 is the one I intend to be the label? Thank you for your recent feedback posts. I'll be better able to properly respond in detail later today. For now though...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

DM42 firmware images 006 Those with DM42's, I recommend trying out: 1. double tap backspace/CLX, executes a DROP 2. try the menus according to the PDF document sent 3. try the new UNITS display mode 4. try the new SIGFIG display mode 5. try generally how the HOME menu works 6. do a series of typical...

Rendering 5: Same as Rendering 4. however, while the yellow and blue hues are the same, their saturation (colour intensity) has been adjusted up to have more contrast, clarity, and impact. I looked at all the renditions, and will restrict my comments on the two most successful ones, i.e. R5 R5c R5c...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Status report and photo updates, and a document that I started, to document the differences to the main project. Work in progress of course. Most importantly, let me clarify: LAYOUT 1 is the preferred layout, and the layout for the proposed template. LAYOUT 2 is the layout meant for DM42 without te...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Both versions shown, the layouts with non-bordered shade boxes (as with the HP-42s) ... and the layouts with bordered boxes actually both have a black box as relief/background to the yellow and blue key label text. The challenge here as I see it is to somehow very discretely differentiate the menu ...

RESET EXIT g[pi] [ENTER] 10 x Results in 31.41.. in X and 0 in Y RESET EXIT g[pi] g[pi] 10 x Results in 31.41.. in X and 3.14.. in Y. I think the stack lift enable is not set. I don't understand what's wrong. In the 1st case, ENTER disables stack lift so 10 overwrites pi in X. In the 2nd case stack...

Re: 43S News

Stack issue reported

Using a fresh compile of the emulator,

Code: Select all

RESET 
EXIT
g[pi] [ENTER] 10 x
Results in 31.41.. in X and 0 in Y

Code: Select all

RESET 
EXIT
g[pi] g[pi] 10 x
Results in 31.41.. in X and 3.14.. in Y.


I think the stack lift enable is not set.
