Re: First impressions of the official DM42

I’ve seen that a new help file has been published on December 19 with a fix for [∑REG] and [∑RG?]. I’m wondering if this is the right topic for comments, or if a dedicated topic would be better (I’m not sure Scotland or Texas related discussions as interesting as they are, can improve the help conte...

Re: GROFFIMG.BMP

The two GROFFIMG files I've seen so far are from the end of drawing. I've tried to run several times the same program but no new file has been created. I just happened to notice this file after doing some screen capture and looking in the SCREENS directory to copy them to my PC, so much later than w...

Re: GROFFIMG.BMP

Yes they were captured in graphic mode but I didn't trigger the capture with Shift+DISP. All the ones that I captured intentionally are following a different naming convention with the date and time of the capture.

Re: GROFFIMG.BMP

I just noticed that the GROFFIMG.BMP file on my DM42 has been updated and contains a new screen shot captured today during the test on my DPLOT version. I still don't know what is triggering the DM42 to capture a screen shot in this file.

Hang detection

I was testing my DPLOT version when the DM42 experienced a hang. The screen was frozen and the calculator was unresponsive to any key press. After some time I pressed the reset on the back with a paperclip and I got the following message on the screen: https://img15.hostingpics.net/thumbs/mini_51080...

Re: GROFFIMG.BMP

Yes, it was a picture of the screen at the time of the file. So it seems that while doing screen captures with Shift+DISP I have somehow created also this file. What is strange is the name, as if it was possible to create a screen capture that will be used for the off screen.

GROFFIMG.BMP

I was taking some screenshots on the DM42 and when I connected the DM42 to the PC I found a file called GROFFIMG.BMP in the SCREENS directory, along with my screen capture files.
I don't know how it was created, and why it has this specific name. Is this a hidden feature not yet fully implemented?

Re: First impressions of the official DM42

The Help System: Available also at <https://www.swissmicros.com/help> It is invoked with F1, starts with a short introduction and the description how you can navigate, cool. So far I only had a glance. [UP] and [DOWN] are described to jump to the previous or following link. That works in principle ...
