The unused top function key

Post by pica » Mon Feb 11, 2019 3:53 pm

How hard would it be to make the unused F3 key a single press shortcut to the custom menu? Or is there a plan for it in the pipeline? Even better but harder to implement would be to make it universally assignable to any function, program or variable I like.

I would go even further - current assignment of (at least for me) not frequently used functions to the top 6 keys is a waste - I would move current functionality into the setup menu. This would make place for permanent assignment of 12 user defined functions to 6 keyes.

The 2nd raw could behave like in the original calculator further extending customizability.

Strong menu-oriented operation of 42 is in my opinion a weak point that can be easily improved by customizable function keys.
