Know that, been there - until end of October. May change again until it materializes.

Well, if layout changes may be entertained, I'll go ahead and throw out my thoughts based on your layout above.

Move the "i" key to the location to the right of the "." (the current location of the "R/S" key). That would place all keys needed to enter any value (0 through 9, "." and "i") in a nice 4 by 3 grid of keys. Just swapping the "i" and "R/S" keys would look like this:

If the “R/S” key looks out of place in the above, swapping the back-arrow and “R/S” keys would put “R/S” above XEQ, grouping the five program manipulation keys in a nice vertical column. The back-arrow would be closer to the other data entry and manipulation keys. This re-arrangement would look like this:

Of course the above would move the back-arrow key from its traditional right-end-of-the-enter-key-row location and would also necessitate that the alpha L skip over the second-from-right key. If that is too radical, my first proposal could still be considered.

Respectfully submitted, to be considered and acted upon as you see fit.


Dave - My mind is going - I can feel it.
