I don't know if this is a known issue, but the sequence: OFF ON doesn't preserve the state of the calculator:
- If there is more than one page of variables, the calculator returns to the first page of the menus.
- The precision returns to the default value of 32 digits.

When writing a program, HIST doesn't register as STO (but when editing a program, it works correctly).

Editing a program with the down cursor doesn't open the multiline editor.

A more pleasing look (at least for me), could be produced in several ways:
- returning to the system used by HP for the menus (which shortens the displayed names by two pixels)
This would be easy to do.

Maybe leaving inactive only the first column of pixels in each menu item can be a good compromise, too.

The scrolling texts in the menus sound weird, unless this can be activated on demand. But it's probably not necessary if we have a way to visualize the entire names, like in the 50g with right shift + down cursor.
