Re: Landscape DM42?

Wow. some designs :shock: Here's a way in order to move the display to the right and keep the correct keys aligned with the display. At the same time make it similar to the 15C.

@tycho: What shall FCN do?
The landscape layout gives two extra keys compared to portrait. I just mapped them to SHIFT->CATALOG->FCN, and STACK ROLL UP in this free42 skin I made a few years ago, but they should be used for something else in a DM42L.

I suppose the FCN or Rv key could be swapped with an ALPHA/SETUP key as well.

Re: My dream DM42 display layout

We should also add justification (left/center/right) for each display item. Furthermore if we could generalize the items, not only stack but also memory / flag. True. It would be nice then with one or two extra pages with custom layout to switch between! I know, many will say this is for the DM43, ...

Re: My dream DM42 display layout

@Bob, thanks for the photo. I had no idea! And I see why you held this back. @Hans, I am not offended by anyone here, rather the opposite - it's a good discussion. I don't think I am trying to change a well proven tech here. We are not discussing the functionality of the calc, but rather how it pres...

Re: My dream DM42 display layout

Re: My dream DM42 display layout

Thanks Walter,
Do we need that horizontal line?
No, not really.

edit: With that said, the line emphasizes the layout idea of the two different areas, and acts as a visual guide to the "status line". It could also be made half as thick and stippled, making it very subtle:

Re: My dream DM42 display layout

@dlachieze, sure I knew there would be different opinions on this, and I think many are happy with the current display layout, but this large nice display begs to be utilized in the best possible way. The layout presented in this thread is nice but IMHO it doesn’t scale well with a different font an...
