only issue so far: the app banner at the top covers the top part of the annunciation area.

New version newrpl-ui (file newrpl-android.apk) appears to be fine on an ASUS Z380M running 7.0 but the annunciators (alpha, caps etc) are partially hidden by the title bar. Res 1280x800

1. I didn't use Photoshop, I used Inkscape! That's good for you. Smile
2. Not all labels are changeable. I only added the labels on the keys, not on the background which are from Olivier. As most of the labels were removed for newRPL, this shouldn't be a big problem.

Anyway, here is the SVG. It uses Arial for the labels, so make sure to have it (if you are on something different than Windows). Have fun!

Thank you. I downloaded it. It's unfortunate that some of the text is bitmapped in the background, but with a bit of work it can be done in vector as well.

I very much agree with this.

Also, while the app looks okay in portrait mode, in landscape it is stretched beyond all recognition.

Also, I'd suggest putting Exit on its own line of the menu, rather than being in File. I can see already that I'll be using it more than the rest of the File options put together.

You can just back out of the app with the Back button, that does the same as Exit for me, i.e. prompt whether to save memory.

On that note: when I exit via the File menu, it prompts me twice. Only once if I back out.

How can I delete files and folders? The path given within the app doesn't seem to exist on my phone - are the files "invisible"?

It seems it defaults to the app private storage. I'll change that to the more public folder in /Android/data/org.hpgcc3.newrpl

Thanks for reporting.

I just got a new phone (Moto X4 with Android 8.1) and the rightmost buttons are cut off. It had been working fine with my previous phone, a Droid Turbo with Android 6.

I think Android lies about the screen size to accommodate some screen edges on some phones. I'm not sure I can do anything to change that, short of writing a dedicated app interface (it may have to happen eventually, as file dialogs are unusable on some phones), but not at the expense of real newRPL development for actual calculators.

If it helps at all, I've noticed that when starting the app (or switching to portrait mode) it draws the screen correctly at first, then almost instantly expands, pushing the buttons off the screen.
