if I use STO symbol in Home

2_(km)"triangle"99_(ft) I get an ERROR

2_(km)"triangle"1_(ft) I get an ERROR

2_(km)"triangle"0_(ft) I get an ERROR

but

2_(km)"triangle"_(ft) I get 6561.6…..

the about is true for CAS (wonderful)

in Home view if I type

2_(KM)"triangle"_FT I get an ERROR

in CAS view if I type the same

2_(KM)"triangle"_FT I get _[((1000.*_M)/_FT * 2. _FT])

There were other anomalies, but my mind broke I can't remember what they were. When using the CONVERT cmmd you have to put in a number before the second unit, but in the "triangle" cmmd you must NOT put in a number before the second unit. The 616 page manual says nothing about this anomaly.

Instead of just ERROR messages, can't HP just inform the user "This function only works in Home mode" This simple instruction would save hours of research and frustration for the users trying to figure which comma was misplaces, etc.

I think there should be a specific app for conversion. One with a modern GUI...too many key presses right now for just converting from one unit to another, in my opinion. Or at least the whole process of going through the menus is tiring.
