fourth "minifont" text font to hp-prime.
Hello, to take advantage of the small screen of the calculator, I think it is possible to add a fourth "minifont" text font to hp-prime.

The hp50 y hp50 with newRPL works with 4 text font size

It is not a pixelated font, but a smaller font than the current one.

1: Mini Font
2: Small Font
3: Medium Font
4: Large Font

You want to go smaller then the smallest already printing size? Are you making programs for ants??!?!?!?

The problem is that you CAN'T go any smaller really without losing support the wide array of characters supported by the main font in the mini-font due to pixel limitations.

Another side note, the 48/50g font is already IN prime and used for some of the graphical elements. For example, look at the clock display and other items in the menu bar like the indicators. Those are 48 font drawn pixel by pixel with no rasterization.

Hello,

Chineese characters basically need at least 12*12 for display.

The 48 font is 8 pixel high :-( so it is limited to "roman" characters...

But, as Tim has notted, the 48 font IS NOT DEAD!

I actually use it anythime I need to reder basic text in various programs as it is only 2KB and as I have the "data" in both C syntax and Pascal syntax.

Look also at the 20b series. The text there is also using the 48 font...

Cyrille, Long live the 48!

some symbols seem to require at least 12 * 12 pixels to be displayed, but the languages that have Latin/roman characters, if we can have text font of less than 12 * 12 pxls and is even perfectly readable 6 * 6 pixels, I think that if the calculator is selected a language with Latin characters, then allow to have very mini fonts at least 11 * 11, 10 * 10, 9 * 8 pxls on history view
