There is an error in the DM41X User Manual v1.12 in Section 3.1.2. Regarding use of the Thermal Printer, there is an informational note regarding VIEW and AVIEW that states that "If you have the Thermal Printer module installed, and no thermal printer is being used, program execution will halt when encountering a VIEW or AVIEW instruction." This is incorrect, and should say "will not halt." When operating normally, VIEW and AVIEW halt execution, and when the Thermal Printer module is plugged in, VIEW and AVIEW do not operate normally, which is why the Thermal printer module must be unplugged to obtain normal operation.
You're right. After much effort to get all these subtle notes added, I got this one exactly backwards. Thanks for the comment! :)

Another minor error in the User Manual. In Section 6.2.4. Save RAW Program, the current program is shown on line 3 of SI mode, not line 2 as stated in the Manual.

The header is not considered a 'line' of the stated view. The '1st' line of a view is always the line just below the header. This should be consistent throughout the manual, but please feel free to note inconsistencies if you see any.

Nope, it IS the third line, not including the header. You even state this in Section 3.1.2. ;)

DM41X Fixes and improvements:
  • When you use the calculator to reformat the FAT disk, it now creates all the various sub-directories.
Updated without issue.

This works correctly if you use the "Format FAT Disk" option. If you format as part of the "FAT Disk Media Test", then not all directories are created.

Thanks Mark. I've passed this on.

Quite right, the current program name is seen in the 3rd line of the SI View. 'line 2' will be corrected next time around. Thx.

[*]The XROM ID of a plugged-in module now shows on the "ROM Map" and "Module Page Info" pages.
I notice that the XROM# for LIBRARY4 (35) is not shown at either of the above.

PWRX's ROMLST, PG? & ROM? functions all show it, however.
