Quote:Interesting. This trick also works in the SUMS menu, if there is data entered into the statistics registers.
I found that if I keyed the number 1 through 6 counting from the left, it entered that constant into X immediately.
Of course, it works in the MODES, DISPLAY, MEM, CLEAR, X?Y, X?0, BASE, and FLAGS menus as well, but you would expect it to work in those cases, because in these cases the menu items are explicitly numbered. The menu items *aren't* numbered in the SUMS or CONST menus, yet the numbers work anyway.
Quote:The CONST key actually brings up a series of eight different menus, which you can scroll through using UP-ARROW, DOWN-ARROW, [right-shift] CONST, or [left-shift] CONST. The number 1-6 trick seems to work on each separate menu.
I tried it with 7, 8, etc and that doesn't work (obvioulsy you did the same).
So you can't get constant #7 (i.e., the first constant in the second CONST menu) with [right-shift] CONST 7. But you apparently can get it by holding down [right-shift], pressing CONST twice while [right-shift] is down (which scrolls to the second CONST menu), and then 1.
This procedure works for the two SUMS menus too.
