Remember you can use the top two rows of keys to enter 01, 02, ...10, so STO 01 is STO ∑+, STO 02 is STO 1/X, etc., so you don't need to do two keypresses for register numbers 1 through 10. Same thing goes for RCL, FIX, SCI, ENG, VIEW, TONE, LBL, GTO, and lots more.

Same for XEQ, so you can have another plane of program-specific "user" keys that don't actually require you to be in USER mode. I really ought to make use of that more than I do.

"Remember.. " Thank you for the kind nudge. It's only been a few decades since those exam days. Reflecting a bit more, there's a glimmer of a memory that I may well have been storing constants in the top row and using other tricks I've long since forgotten. Gotta pull those overlays and program notes out for review some day. Pleasant memories... .

Thanks for the tips. Been using softkey storage registers on 50g and Free42, but when I pick up one of my 41s I'll be a little bit quicker.
