Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

This discussion/meandering think-tank is indeed both interesting and productive. I like both sets of ideas, obviously for differing reasons, but I'd caution against mixing them, as in my experience multiple simultaneous 'non-standard' sets of UI controls tends to confuse nearly all users. So I'd imp...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Let me try: Assuming "hold" represents the amount of time which distinguishes between a normal (short) press and a long one. Then: Press + release = execute FN (the normal, short press function) Press + hold + release = execute f(FN) Press + hold + hold + release = execute g(FN) Press + hold + hold...

Re: Useful Content for the "Ultimative OFFIMG"

This works, but... oh my poor eyes! :shock: Thanks Massimo! I can barely read this on my PC screen, it will be a chuckle to try reading it on my DM42, but I'll give it a go... What's the secret on how you were able to convert it? Was it as simple as copy/paste? Update: Wow, it is brutally small, bu...

Re: Useful Content for the "Ultimative OFFIMG"

Wow, a very impressive undertaking and result!! Thank you for your notable efforts! I've never found a way to reduce the color bit depth without loss, as far as I know you must start with the 1-bit color depth (b&w). However since you certainly don't want to do that again (!!) you might try to creat...

Re: Useful Content for the "Ultimative OFFIMG"

That's kind of you deetee, but I'm not a guru of any kind, I simply have loved HP machines since the 70's, still collect and use them, and am louder than most folks. No, it is not worth it to create the full view, your sample image above shows that it is more technically possible than it would be us...

Re: Original fonts

good point Walter; I assumed the OP was talking about the Voyagers, not sure why. Apols if I've gone off-topic :) It probably is the Voyagers, as the DM42 has a font that is very similar to the original HP-42S, although it also has a different font, which possibly is selected leading to the questio...

Re: Useful Content for the "Ultimative OFFIMG"

Any further suggestions (beside a periodic table for what I have no place left)? First, thanks for this update! I use this Off-Screen image on all my DM42 machines, and will update them this weekend. Regarding the periodic table, if that really was feasible (not sure there is enough resolution) kee...
