This is remarkably similar to a two-line display mode developed by our friend Nigel Dowrick (see this old Forum thread).
It's similar because my work is based on the original Y register display. Smile

It'd certainly be a very noticeable reminder, but I don't like the idea of creating cognitive dissonance. If there's demand for it, I don't mind making it a compile time option and releasing a binary in which it's enabled, but I wouldn't use it myself.

When entering a multi-digit value, it seems like the numbers appear in the display relatively slowly, especially if I am using both thumbs to key in the value. Not a big deal, just wondering if it is really there.
It's not your imagination. I consider it a bug: a regression like that is unacceptable. I'll look into it once I have the time.
