HP Prime nagative angle problem
Hi, I' using HP Prime (Application version: 20140702 v6031, Operating system version: V0.032.6030)
when I 'm in the Home View (Angle Measure: Degrees) and enter for example 0.2535241 and want to convert it in DMS (using decimal to sexagesimal conversion key) I get this 0°15'12.68676" without a minus. This is only problem when the angle is negative and it has 0°. Is this a bug?

Yes, it is. Note that is is purely display purposes and the negative is actually there. If it falls between 1 and 0 this happens. Sorry! :(
TW Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own.

The negative sign of the angle is there, if you use it in the next calculation.
But if you grab it from the history screen after some intermediate calculations (say, a couple rows up), the negative sign will be lost.

Ugh, I didn't notice it. Thanks for warning.
