WP 34S : Reopening last catalog called - Revisited
Message #1 Posted by Miguel Toro on 9 Sept 2011, 12:44 p.m.

Hello team 34s,

I flashed the new firmware and tested the "last catalog called" feature, and it worked...beyond expectation: now, even if you turn off the calculator, the last position is kept. That is really nice...a little la 42s. What is needed is a small change on the manual, page 66, so to delete "This position is lost when the WP 34s is turned off." :-)

Thanks and regards,

Miguel

That the position used to be lost across a power cycle was actually a bug in an internal routine. But if Walter insists I can make the software behave the way the manual describes. ;-)

I don't insist ;-)

Page 66 is changed and committed.
