HP50g - Flag Status in Header
Is there any way to display flags 1-5 status in the header?
The original HP48s/g had this feature.

Thank you

Hello,

From memory, no...
this display caused more trouble than not in the 48, it was one of the most frequent support calls (remember when you could call the company to get some help on a product!) so we were specifically asked to remove it in the 49/50!

I suppose the calls were about "I have a small number in the header, don't understand what it is and don't want to RTFM :-)"

BTW, the 49g/g+ and 50g header is identical to the one in Metakernel for HP48, so i suppose that the decision not to display flags status was taken before HP49 design
