|Suggestion for the Next HP-50G ROM...|

Since the HP technicians (Tim, Cyrille, et al.) follow this forum, I thought I would take advantage of it and make a simple suggested modification to the AMORT menu that would hopefully be incorporated into a future ROM version:
The AMORT menu currently consists of:
F1 - EDIT
F5 - B->PV
F6 - AMOR
I suggest adding two new functions that would *greatly* improve the functionality of AMORT:
F3 - PREV
F4 - NEXT
Whereas "F3" would decrement the "Payments" value, and then recalc and relist the form.
"F4" would increment the "Payments" value, and then recalc and relist the form.
Thus, someone wanting to "watch" the changes in an easy "one-click" month* by month way can do so without having to click the "up" key, entering the new "Payment" number, and then clicking AMOR for every new iteration.
(* - I assume that "Month" is the normal default payment period for mortgages for the purpose of this posting.)
