Home screen, RPN, sum formula not updatable
I can run a sigma (sum) formula on home screen (RPN mode).
https://ibb.co/wgZJbrL If I duplicate it and slightly modify it (10000 in place of 1000), I get an (not meaningful) error. https://ibb.co/WfpDSGv In Texbook mode, no problem.  HP 48GX, Prime G2, 50G. A long time ago : 11C, 15C, 28C, 28S. SwissMicros DM42, DM15L

RE: Home screen, RPN, sum formula not updatable
When I input the summation you describe, using radians and RPN, the expression is encapsulated by single quotes: 'Sum etc. etc.'
It seems you have to first press shift + parentheses key (which will give you single quotes): ' ' Then select and press Enter on the expression on the stack you want to modify. This worked for me.

First of all you have to put the two quotes (shift + "parenthesis" key), then you have to select the sum and duplicate it with "Stack" and "Echo". Then change "1000" to "10000", press "Enter" and "shift eval".

The expression appeared on the command line. I then moved to the 1000 and added a zero. Then I hit Enter again and the new expression was calculated. I'm using the 2.1.14575 (2021 04 28) Beta.

In "RPN" mode your method works only if you first hit "shift" + parenthesis: ' '. Am I wrong? Sincerely, Roberto

I don't mean this flippantly. You're better off avoiding RPN mode on the Prime altogether. As Cyrille himself admitted in a recent interview, RPN on the Prime is an afterthought (unlike the RPL line of calculators up to and inclusive of the 50g).
There are so many pain points, it's simply not worth the effort.

Indeed, using "RPN" on the HP 50g is much smoother than using "RPN" on the HP PRIME. HP PRIME is not an "RPN" calculator

Sincerely, Roberto you're right ! thank you, now I see how to duplicate (pick), modify and run a formula in RPN. As said above, 1st type ' ', then double tap the stack line, edit, and Enter. The OS could communicate better on this point, as the text duplicate in the command line was HIS action...;) ! Or it could include ' ' silently when a formula line is copied to the command line.

I was in Algebraic mode. I never use RPN mode on the Prime since it's just kind of grafted on like an afterthought and not really an integral part of the calculator. Tom L Cui bono?
