base conversion problems...

RE: base conversion problems...
I did discover R->B, which is too much to type for the frequency with which I do these conversions. Currently I'm using my old TI86 or an app on my phone to do conversions as the prime is too cumbersome.
I also discovered how to get a decimal number into the integer editor. You have to enter it in the format #43d hit enter, and enter the integer editor. If I'd just had 43 on the stack, the editor doesn't open and the # character appears on the input line.
Unfortunately, edit inside the editor only allows the current base (hex for me)....when it really should do it in whatever you change the base to be.
I'm really surprised the prime has made base conversion so cumbersome. Maybe I'll write a program to produce the menu method and change the definition of the base key...
I'd highly recommend changes in this area for a future release of the firmware.
Thx
