RE: setting to get common functions in soft keys?
You're right, soft menus don't have a quick or easy solution. As if that weren't enough, sometimes it would be great to have a soft-key trigger a sub menu of related content. Try that one for fun!

As Eddie has shown, and I have used a very similar approach for a Smith Charting program a long time ago, it only gets more burdensome to control soft-choices.

As with soft menus, another impasse, that took me awhile to figure out, was how to rotate text so that legends on a circle could appear properly, with regard to radials from a center point. (The reactance circles, on the Smith chart, for instance). To do that took a pretty significant subroutine, to place text at the appropriate (X,Y) coordinate, and rotate the text, pixel by pixel, for each character! So there are still a few features absent from that ultimate peak of perfection prime, left perhaps for the future ...
