Edit: Personally, I prefer mathematical symbols over English abbreviations, e.g. √ over SQRT or 1/x over INV or e^x over EXP. NRT is hardly decodable unless you see it standing next to x^y. Printing English abbreviations is ok if you want to sell it to the British Empire exclusively, but you wrote about targeting mass production Wink

Unfortunately ArithMax is not an RPN calculator - it runs EigenMath so the keyboard is designed for it, and the manual is mainly based on the manual of EigenMath. (Though the manual is still asleep now XD)
(I realized the "=" problem soon after the post. Tongue)
Thanks for the advice! Here is a newer version of the keyboard.
