HP 50g "Split Screen"
Hello,

the HP 40gs has the nice feature "Plot-Table" to display a plot along with the values table on one screen:

Both parts are also synchronized, if you use the cursor keys to select another position in the plot, the corresponding entry in the table is automatically selected (and vice versa). You can also select values outside the current display. There is an automatic change of the window parameters:

Such this "Split Screen" I have not found for the 50g. Is there perhaps a hidden function for this? Or could this be done with a User RPL program?

Thanks and best regards
Joerg

Hello,

Nope, there is no split screen in the 50g...
It is in the 40 because it came about as a "education" feature and the 38 series is an "education" calculator.

However, the feature was never back-ported to the 49/50 series...

HP Prime has it of course...

Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own. I do not speak for HP.

Of course, it goes along the 38/39/40 line, with the 39gii as its closest relative.

Although this is not available natively, a program for this would be fantastic indeed. As a workaround you can trace the graph and put points onto the stack AFAIK.

Another feature I really miss is moving the viewport dynamically while tracing.

Yes me too, I have found the program "Plot 49" (https://www.hpcalc.org/details/3133). It's a little bit slow, but it can move the viewport dynamically.
Maybe it helps.

Best Regards
Joerg

maybe I did not fully understand what "plot49" does, but if while viewing a chart and setting the area larger than 131x80, you can press left-shift and left-arrow to scroll the screen with ease.
