Fixed. In my listing of commands I ticked off the wrong SHOW. SHOW is now assigned to g-shifted EXIT, just as on the real calculator. I'm leaving "SHOW" on f-shift 0 as "display number at full precision" because I use that a lot. I hope this isn't confusing.
This one is deliberate. With the exception of the letters and symbols printed on the keyboard, I want the catalogues and other symbols to be in the same keyboard locations on the two calculators (so that the standard manual tells you what to press). I had a look at the code, and I think that changing this might break something somewhere else.
My mistake. This is fixed now. (Note that you can get space, ? and : from +, R/S, and 0 (g-shift R/S gives !), in line with what is printed on the keyboard.)
Looking at your photograph I see what you mean. There's room; I've shifted the alpha section 15 pixels to the right and it looks better now. The "pixels" were 4x4 dots on the screen; I've changed them to 4x5 and I quite like the result. What do you think?dlachieze wrote: ↑Mon Mar 22, 2021 6:24 pmThe WP 34S display renders beautifully on the DM42 screen, I have just two small comments: it seems to me that the Alpha section of the display is a bit too close to the edge of the screen. I would prefer it to be a bit to the right as on the WP 34S display. And the pixels on the WP 34S (HP 30b) Alpha display are not square but rather rectangular and from what I've measured on a close-up picture I took from the display, they seem to be about 10% higher than larger giving taller characters than what we have on the DM42 version.
The new pgm file and an updated helpfile are now on gitlab.
