??? really? I can't see him switching the fonts... I've just 3 fonts with new firmware. The first two are the same, one is in bold. The other is the new one with lcd style. Can you help me to understand?
No you are right- there is the bold font, the dot matrix font and the one which looks similar to the one with a dot in it, but is different. I did not notice at first. The one that really caught my eye was the bold one. The others seemed to be the same as before. But I'm not going to reload the old firmware to sort out the issue properly. :?

Since the bold font is only available in two sizes, maybe it could be made to switch to the narrow font for the smaller sizes? Then, for example, you could have X and Y in a large, bold font, Z and T in a small, bold font, and L in a narrow, tiny font.

BTW, is the stack layout option with L at the bottom new in this release? I haven't noticed it before.

Take a look at:
> Setup> Settings> Stack Font Sizes.
Select by Arrow up/down the register you want to modify.
Press "Enter"
Toggle through the font sizes by repeatedly pressing "Enter".
Press "Exit".

DMCP 3.20 (DM42 v3.16) offered LXYZT as option 7.

Yes, but it will only display two font sizes for the stack items when the bold font is selected because it is currently only available in two sizes. My suggestion to the developers is to borrow the smaller sizes of the regular font (which is available in six sizes) when the bold font is selected.

Strange I never noticed it before. Actually, the stack layout menu is in the DM42PGM setup menu, not DMCP..

Has anyone successfully "downgraded" to older versions of DMCP and/or DM42?
Or is there any risk of something going wrong?
(I would try to check, if some observations also did exist in older releases.)

As explained here I have downgraded successfully back to DMCP-3.9a / DM42-3.9.1.

I have upgraded and downgraded several times with different versions without any issue. I just didn't go back before the FAT firmware upgrade was implemented.
