Issue?: Catalog scrolling speed differences

Post by mcc » Mon Aug 27, 2018 3:13 am

Hi,

while using my DM42 I recognized the following difference in the scrolling speed of the Catalog entries.

1) Go to Setup->Settings->Slow_Auto_repeat and set it to X (activate it).
2) Leave the Setup menu
3) Enter the Catalog->FCN menu
4) Press and hold the down-arrow to scroll through the menu
5) Remember the scrolling speed
6) Leave the Catalog
7) Enter PRGM-mode
8) Enter the Catalog->FCN menu again
9) Press and hold the down-arrow to scroll through the menu
10) The scrolling speeds ( 9) & 5) ) are identical.
11) Leave the Catalog
12) Leave the PRGM-mode
13) Go to Setup->Settings->Slow_Auto_repeat and set it to _ (deactivate it).
Repeat the above steps.
Now the scrolling speed of the Catalog has increased for PRGM but stays slow for normal calculation mode.

I cannot decide wether this is a glitch in The Matrix ;) or it is intentionally implemented this way.
But I like the higher scrolling speed even if I don't program ... :)

Cheers!

Scrolling of the menu in run mode is handled by Free42. Because Free42 does not have multiline support in PRGM mode, that particular aspect of the DM42 is handled entirely by DMCP, hence the setting only applying to PRGM mode.

I've raised this with David but I don't know how easily fixable it is.
