Thanks for your suggestion  will think about making this possible. Additionally, there will be (surprise!) two manuals for this product when it will become reality  some 500 pages in total so far.ijabbott wrote: ↑Wed Mar 07, 2018 8:49 amOne small suggestion: show the equation underneath where it says "Power*", if there is room.
EDIT: I mean the equation with the a0 and a1 coefficient symbols in it, not an equation with the numeric coefficients, just as a reminder of what the coefficient symbols represent.

Re: 43S News
Assuming the DM42 is intended to be the platform  when might the details needed to write software for it be published?

Re: 43S News
Is there a chance we can get a link to one or both of these manuals?

Re: 43S News
... and it's even viable. Just for logarithmic fits you loose a digit more, meaning output of fit parameters will have a somewhat limited precision but sufficient for the real world by far.
EDIT: If I counted correctly, parameter output for L.R. would be confined to 12 'significant' digits total in FIX format and to 8 'significant' digits in SCI or ENG with a 2digit exponent. This should cover precision for all reasonable applications of such fits  and after next keystroke, you may see every number in full 16 digits glory FWIW.
EDIT2: More careful counting resulted in 1 significant digit more  corrected above.

Re: 43S News
Am I the only one who doesn't like the look of this? I mean no disrespect, but it looks terribly cluttered to me.
Re: 43S News
What exactly looks cluttered? Please be slightly more specific.
What I've learned from potential customers:
 They prefer the HP32II over the HP32. Thus, two shift keys are featured.
 They want to see four stack levels FWIW. Ok, you get them. You can always display less ...
 They don't like deep menus. Thus, up to 18 menu items are shown at once. All can be accessed directly as described above.

Re: 43S News
Is a size reduction possible for the fit equation? Split it over two lines? Rename a0 and a1 as a and b? Other shortcut?
This text is purely informational, so maximum readability needn't be a strict requirement.
Of course, 8 significant digits is more than adequate for real world use

Re: 43S News
I like this  just one question which comes to mind: Will it be possible to show / hide the rows of soft key labels on the bottom of the screen, to see actual mathematics instead?Walter wrote: ↑Thu Mar 08, 2018 10:13 amWhat exactly looks cluttered? Please be slightly more specific.

Mind you, I am one of those (or perhaps the only one?) who like to always see the "default" soft menu on the DM42 and probably will on the 43S as well  if the soft keys do anything, I'd like to see what, but 1/3 (edited) of the screen is a lot of space sometimes...
