Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

For those gravitating towards Rendering 5. (with the punched up colour saturation) let me offer an additional tweak ... a variant (5b) with bordered label boxes as well. They are both presented together so as to make an easy direct comparison. Again ... its good to have the feedback whether pro or c...

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 k...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

In order to get the preceding renderings online, I had to basically cripple the resolution. Disappointing, to say the least. The originals are crystal clear ... life-like really. The intent was to give everyone interested a very realistic sense of this thing as it comes together. There's a lot of ca...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Been chiselling away honing the latest rendering version of Layout 2 (2019-08-12). Still A LOT of details that need fine tuning ... At this point though, however, I have three variations to offer ... in need of some consideration: Rendering 1. Menu keys with labels that have a light border around a ...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Perhaps a brief change of the channel, for just a little bit. Been trying to keep up with all of the changes … Please see drawing below … warts and all. Besides the obvious labeling errors needing an update, and work to be finished populating this sketch/model. Please feed back on what you think: Cr...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Not to worry. I can set the dimensions pixel size, whatever) to whatthey need to be. It is no concern at all. However, losing an email in transit ... somehow ... well that may be. Will wait to see what happens before sending the other stuff. :?

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Hey ... I figure it would be timely now to pass along an update. I've been working full out on a high resolution template over the last few days ... and will continue over the weekend. Looks very promising ... with several different iterations to consider ... and critique. So, don't throw out any of...
