On the latest firmware the following command do not work:


But all other flag commands works ok like FC?C and FS?C
I'm not seeing that on my calc. How do they fail? Bear in mind there's no user flags (not sure they are useful or not, I never used them myself), only system so flag numbers are always negative.

However typing an additional character always bring back the display and everything is fine.
Also could not reproduce it here. Any chance you can come up with a reproducible sequence of keypresses so I can see what's going on?

Right now my HP-50 always revert to full stack display (no 2nd menu) after power up.
Also tried this, can't make it fail at all on my calc. Menu 2 goes back to hiding after help or error or power cycle. Or stays visible when it's supposed to.
Is there any chance you flashed an old firmware? Make sure your update.scp is pointing to the right file.
All other issues you mentioned could also be due to going back to an older firmware version.

Then the cursor changes from P to A inside the quotes as it should but will remain an A even when exiting the quotes. Pressing Alpha will cycle between C, L and A even if not inside quotes. Is there a way to have the P back? It is not the end of the world as everything can be typed anyway but it is a bit annoying as the automatic spaces are not inserted anymore for the basic operation and the function like SIN, MOD etc are inserted with parentheses.
Ahhh... the dynamic mode switching feature again. It's useful, though not trivial to implement. Could be implemented in the future so I'll add it to the bug tracker. Right now it's the same as the 50g: ALG also stays on in the stock firmware as you described. You can use ENTRY to go back to P mode (same as stock firmware, right-shift+alpha).

Thanks, in the name of everyone.
