Inconsistency Rant
As much as I love the Prime (it's my favorite calculator of my current stable of 43 different machines from around the world) Sometimes I just don't get it.
Example (in RPN mode, of course!): Calculate sin(5): 5, sin Calculate sinh(5): 5, Enter, sinh(1), Enter I'm not calling for any changes but just venting. Thanks for indulging me! Tom L Tom L Cui bono?

Not quite sure I understand you here. I do 5 ENTER TOOLBOX>Hyperbolic>sinh and it immediately evaluates the sinh(5).

When I do that, it shows SINH() and the number in parentheses must be the number of arguments on the stack. If I use the toolbox, it works as expected. I guess I'd like the catalog to show commands and functions that are consistent with the current mode  in CAS mode, show functions in CAS format, in algebraic mode show functions in algebraic format and in RPN mode show functions in RPN format. Either that or always show all commands and functions so that both SINH and SINH() would show. Tom L Tom L Cui bono?

The issue is that for commands that take a fixed number of args when picked from the catalog don't automatically evaluate. I'll see what I can do.
