The files can be found here, download. I do not have the differences document ready as yet. So many things changed, so I need some time to update the screen images etc.
We, that is inautilus and I, are making very good progress on the graphic for the DM42 WP43C keyboard template. During this work, in the process of positioning the labels, we realised that the central part is fairly congested, so I really want to shorten two keywords:
LASTx can become LSTx, which is not a problem as LSTx looks almost like LASTx.
BASE, on g[CHS] is just one character too long and as a test I used BAS on the pic below. To remind you, BASE is the menu with a collection of word length, number base and type conversion functions.
Options I have for BASE is
- BAS. Bas sounds almost like base.
- BSE. Bse does not sound a bit like base, which is not good, but it almost looks like base.
- BIN. Bin for binary could be seen as representative, but I don’t know.
Below is the simulator picture of the WP43C with a little facelift, based on some of the bits we are making for the keyplate artwork incorporated in the simulator, like the colours, and the icons. Note that these pictures below are still just simulator images on Windows, not the artwork for the key plates.
On the left is a simulator In normal mode, and on the right, a simulator with the optional U_SHFT KEYS pack activated in USER mode. Note the use of thin colour lines on the real DM42 template indicating the changing keys. On the white lines, the key function can change in user mode, i.e. in this case USER on Σ+ and TRIG on SIN. Also the coloured lines where COS and TAN will function as shifts.
A new addition is illustrated in the softmenu shown (accessed by HOME Dn Dn) which shows dynamic content (buttons), containing the actual key functions as they would change after Assigned with ASN between normal and user modes. With this menu, you have a live indication of where your changed keys are. This is useful for the KEYS packs of keys. In the picture, the third key row is shown in the menu with STO RCL ..., complete with f and g functions indicated on the softmenu.
This additional basically is an upgrade of the previous lookup softmenu table that I made to guide a user as to where the hidden blue labels on the DM42 layout are located. It still does that, but it is now live updated, with the USER mode assigns.
. . In this screen shot it is shown that the top row of keys below the FN keys were re-assigned to be ⍺, ⍺STR menu, 𝝿, UNIT menu, PRINT menu, and HOME. The keys are assigned, and of course on the DM42 you cannot see keys are assigned like on the emulator picture. With this menu you can see all the keyboard re-allocations.
On a previous post I showed that I wrote a function to display the statistical data on an XY graph that auto scales. I had sample graphs shown. Somebody mentioned that we should be able to edit that data. That is not done yet, but I did add a feature where you can list the last 10 data points. It cannot scroll as yet, but already it is useful to see which points are in there while entering. See below.
