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.

Re: [DM15L] USB Power?

I want to crunch numbers with my DM15L and I need the power to last more than what the battery can give. If your needed calculations require more than the DM15L can provide on an entire battery, then perhaps you have chosen the wrong tool for the job. As awesome and fast as the DM15L is, it certain...

Re: Creating offimage

now, if i may trouble you, what did you use to convert? Sorry, I should have stated in my post above, that was using plain old MS Paint - in my case it was Win7, but Paint in Win10 is the same. Create a new file, use Properties to set the size and bit depth of 1 (B&W) and save settings (e.g. save t...

Re: Creating offimage

Geoff - set the file properties (400 x 240 and color to 1 bit depth) before you paste images in (or edit them, etc.) and it will generally come out as you're expecting; changing it after you're done all the editing/pasting, etc. produces the yucky images as it tries to dither down to 1-bit.

Re: [DM41L] CAT display too fast in 48MHz vs 12MHz

I find that the CAT function display speed is too fast (and different) in 48MHz than 12MHz. I find myself going to 12MHz before launching CAT to be able to read the display and than going back to 48MHz... Any way to slow it down in 48MHz or have same speed of display as in 12MHz? I don't have a DM4...

Would someone be kind enough to add the sleeping owl to this list ?
The original Owl image is used if you have no custom images installed. Remove any you've loaded and restart and it should be shown.

Re: Attention collectors!

Sorry for replying late, I thought I had replied back when the list began, but looking it over just now, it's clear I didn't.

So, 1 DM10L for me please.

To:

Has resolved the issue for me.
Nice find Mark, worked for me too.

Using IE11 on Win-7 Pro (x64).

Thanks for sharing a real useful tip (which I may use for other sites too).

Re: Suddenly Login on each visit is required?

It's pretty clear something has changed here.... one or two of us may be wacky, but when you reach 5 or 6 or more, it moves from wacky to something fishy...

@Michael or @grsbanks - Has something changed intentionally?
