I recommend that the these key combinations instead reveal what is stored in the variable (maybe a preview) using the status area at the bottom, or (via the other shift) recall the contents into the program area. Thus, the "." operation can be achieved by pressing the [VAR] key, finding the variable, previewing its contents if necessary, and inserting the content of a directly into the command line.


I think the use of [LS] [Fn] and [RS] [Fn] to STO to, or RCL from, a variable is such a fundamental feature of command-line RPL that changing it's behavior should be avoided. I've no strong opinion about the other suggestions, but think that some 'core' behavior of RPL must be retained to provide a comfortable environment while users are exploring these interesting newRPL enhancements.

They wouldn't be changed if there is no active command line. The suggestion was to change their behavior while a command line was active. When a command line is active those shifted key sequences only provide a typing aid as is currently implemented in the HP48-HP50 series.
