100% chance. Those functions have been in Free42 since 2004.
I checked these long ago, was waiting for someone to comment. Cool (and exactly correct) that you kept them hidden (not visible in the Fcn list).

Re: Self Test on DM42?

For the HP-42s, pg 261 of the owners manual.... These do not work on the DM42. Those instructions were common to all Pioneer machines, but the DM42 is not based on the HP ROMs (whereas the DM1x machines are based on HP ROMs), but rather on the excellent (and superior) built from scratch Free42 appl...

Just curious, but what serial number do these first public units start with? Are they engraved or just a sticker?
I believe production will use 100+

Thanks, I guess this will be sufficient. Perhaps I missed the information, but how far was the range with the beta units?
Discussed here

Seems like a good improvement in printing range, thanks very much for that.

Re: DM42 User Manual

Another small team of same size worked with other priorities around 2011 as you know. But at the bottom line it's the decision of the team what to do when. We (the beta testers here) can just indicate what we observe and miss, be it in HW, SW, documentation, regulatorial issues, or elsewhere - in m...

Re: DM42 User Manual

I don't disagree with you guys that want good documentation, I value good manuals, and spend as much time (and sometimes money) searching for and collecting manuals that go with machines, as I see them as truly a part of the product. However, criticizing SM for not providing a complete manual when t...

Re: DM42 User Manual

It seems to me that folks that are smart enough to use the power and flexibility of the DM42 are also smart enough to remember a few possibly hidden keys. If pressed, then all you really need to remember is F2. If that's still a challenge, you probably shouldn't be using this machine.
