Lastx is already a function in the main project, activated by RCL L. Walter reckoned it should be remembered by users.
Doesn't this mean that you could do STO J, STO K, but not STO L? Users need to remember this?

And can you do RCL X, RCL Y, RCL Z, RCL T etc. to access those registers directly?

Re: 43S Alternative key layout

The only improvement not breaking the the 42S pattern is as follows, at the cost of not having a scientific EXP menu up north, and not having SAVE on the STO key: Move the shifts on X<>Y to STO. Move the shifts on 8 to X<>Y. Move the shifts on STO to 8. I quite like the effect. I don’t care about t...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout

Please have a thorough look at the grouping of the keys now. I think the result is good and very practically arranged. I think the double tap shift key works great and the dots indicating the shift line selected is good. j Very well done, Jaco! I like this a lot, and any concrete improvements are g...

The < is a placeholder for angle, placed next to magnitude.

I really like the logic of ENTER, FILL & STK in vertical arrangement. With CNST going to [g] [7].
Perfect! :-)

Re: 43S Alternative key layout

Comments? I immediately liked SHOW MODE on the [CHS] key - the proximity to VIEW DISP agrees well with my particular flavour of CDO (same as OCD, but spelled correctly). What does the "<" (the (g) shifted option of [x<>y]) mean? If it means "less than", where is "greater than" (and the rest of the ...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout

@Jaco, are you planning to implement the screenshot feature of the DM42 (hold SHIFT and press DISP)? https://www.swissmicros.com/dm42/doc/dm42_user_manual/#lcd_screenshots This doesn't have to be a problem vs. the cycling shift key behaviour you have adopted - holding (long pressing) the shift key n...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout

Questions for comment: There are cases to be made for the following: 1. Should COMPLEX move to [f] STO, for another key more compatible with HP42S? Bear in mind the COMPLEX functionality offered by the main 43S project is that of "CC"and a little different than HP42S "COMPLEX" even though it achiev...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout

If we're to share the function of the f and g keys, please don't forget the color cues that are so important. I'd go for a key like this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2x1xushgwvcmf7v/FG%20Key.png?dl=1 That would require colouring and printing on the key - but the space above it is free. Would labels f...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout

A: Goals: 1. To not tax or delay the main project with this effort. 2. To make it work on my DM42 and use the primary key labels, unchanged from the DM42 keyboard. A shifted function label overlay will still be needed but no key stickers. 3. To try maintain some of the legacy and familiarity of the...

Creating a custom keyboard

If one were to adopt the DM42 as a hardware platform for some software other than the original, it seems inevitable that the keys and faceplate would need to be replaced. Might someone on or close to the Swiss Micros team, or otherwise in the know, want to comment on the feasibility of having a smal...
