RE: Triangle Solver and realistic drawing of a solved triangle
This is total nitpicking that doesn't make much difference, but I'll mention it anyway: I was showing the official promo video on HP Prime to others, and there is a short clip on Triangle Solver previous reincarnation, which looks almost exactly like the present one but the angles are not A, B,C (like vertices) but Greek symbols for alpha, beta and delta (why not gamma?). The sides were named A,B,C....
It may be just me, but in present App I keep confusing A,B,C with a,b,c not knowing which untitled column of entry boxes contains side length entries and which angles (yes, there is a prompt...). With Greek symbols I would probably know right away that these are angles, with the other 3 (either being a,b,c or A,B,C) being sides. A side note is that, again it's probably me only, I've spent the last few days conditioning myself that A,B,C,... are reserved numerical Home view variables, while a,b,c,... are reserved CAS objects. I know that the triangle solver has nothing to do with it, but still... Cheers!
