Errors in User Manual v1.11a

Post by HPMike » Sat Oct 17, 2020 7:03 pm

1) In Section 3.1.2. Calculator Mode - SI - Refers to the HP-82162A Printer manual for meanings of printer control flags, which is incorrect. This line should be deleted, and the explanation of printer modes above should be expanded with an explanation of flag meanings as follows:

MAN______Manual Print Mode__________flag 15 clear and flag 16 clear

TRA______Trace Print Mode____________flag 15 set and flag 16 clear (or set)

NRM______Normal Print Mode__________flag 15 clear and flag 16 set

Note: A proper reference for these flag settings as well as others can be found in the HP 82242A Infrared Printer Module Owner's Manual

2) In Section 3.3.1. CST Screen - 1. Help - Shows the help file as 41.html, instead of 41x.html on the first and second line.

The reference for the print settings will be changed to refer to the 82160A HP-IL module, as discussed last week.

The help file name will be corrected in the next UM rev, the filename changed in the 1.15 -> 2.0 transition and we missed it.

Thanks for reporting these.
