I just updated my DM 15L to V25, and the new font looks great. What I really would love in the future, is when also the segments font would also be available in medium thickness.
How about this:
Current slim segment font

Hey, D & M,

How about making the DM41 faceplate available to customers? Of course you'd have to charge more than CHF 10 (the difference between the 1.x series and the 41) or else no one would buy the real DM41. They'd just buy a 1.x and the faceplate.

The problem is, the metal domes aren't so well aligned and it needs quite some experience to avoid contact to neighbor buttons.

Yay! for the extra memory! Now I need to figure out what to put there. :)

Am I the only one who doesn't see any difference between the fonts? Press and hold '7', press the 'ON' key, right? I'm sure it's operator error...

Thanks,
Ray

I believe the new font is not available for the DM41(L).

The initial post announcing V25 lists new fonts for the DM1x/DM1xL models, but not for the DM41/DM41L.

The Voyagers have simple 7-segment fonts but the 41 has a much more complex character set, made with 14-segments (I think it's 14).

@michael looking at your font examples, I think that the thin segmented font works best.
