Thanks ...
FANTASTIC!!!

I absolutely love it. Love the improvements. Love the consistent stroke widths. Love your idea of the single white line. I will make the blue and gold lines the same. Really LOVE the exponents and roots.

Just a short note. More later. My work day ahead ...

I also like K.PK, especially next to ASN.

The earth is flat. It just appears round because it is massive and curves spacetime.

Sorry if there is something I haven't been paying enough attention to earlier, but I notice that the grey characters :,?_ on the bottom row seem to be printed lower relative to their key than the letters of the alphabet on the keys above.

Maybe raise them a bit? And maybe also drop the comma a bit, so that the square box on its glyph aligns with the lower square box of the colon?

Alternatively, A.PK as in Assignment Pack ("key" is implicit in ASN as well).

Just an idea for your consideration. :-)

Not sure it is intended, but N and Y characters are white instead of grey.

edit 1: rephrase, and added Y.
edit 2: Massimo was faster for the Y.

Sharp eyes... thank you for the comments. I really need more eyes and appreciate the participation.

About the both Y and N being white: Yes, the intention is to mark it better to find ‘Y’ faster when occasionally the calculator asks for Y/N confirmation.

ASN K.PK
ASN A.PK
ASN KPAC

Dropped PAC. And KPC.
Raised K.PK.
Added A.PK.

ASN K.PK is high due to external support.
ASN A.PK is held equally high by me at the moment due to the repeating of the “A”. Almost easier on the eye. Almost alliteration.
