On the mockup below I moved , and space half a mm up and the eye does see the two anomalies in relation to the other grey font letters disappear when moved up.
I guess my eyes are too old. I don't see the difference! :shock:
We are definitely splitting hairs at this point. It is time to move this puppy into production.

That's a difference almost vanishing when you print it to scale. Seems we reached the realm of academic modifications...

I verify and share my observations for your benefit and your choice to action or ignore makes no difference to me. Don’t let me delay production!

How about doing something for it? We'd still appreciate capable coding collaborators caring...

Feel free to apply on your favorite forum.

(Edit 2020-02-12: Edition 0.15 of the draft manuals is available now. Happy reading! Please don't forget reporting any errors, typos, etc. found. Thanks in advance. 8-) )

Another major step forward: Martin has implemented all the functions contained in BITS. So there are some 30 function waiting to be tried and tested by you!

A new wp43s.exe is available for you to do so. :D

Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Haven’t seen an update of a 34s in a while ... you are mixing up your kids I’m sure 😝

Good effort re BITS Martin! Wow!

Walter - Would you consider uploading new versions of the WP43S manuals to gitlab in .zip format (i.e. put the .pdf file into a zip)?

In order to download the manuals from the site, gitlab insists on downloading and rendering the complete pdf file in it's browser/viewer before enabling the download button, and for manuals this large, it takes many minutes and virtually locks-up the browser (I've tried both Firefox and Edge/Chromium) until it's done.

Perhaps there is some gitlab trick/technique to avoid this, but I've not found it yet. The only shortcut I've found is after 30 secs or so, the browser notes things are moving slowly and asks to continue or abort - if I abort, I can then click the download link and it works.

Alternately, maybe the site owners can disable pdf file render/preview?

Thanks
