Prime Software Buttons - kris223 - 09-21-2013

There is a row of software buttons on the bottom of the screen. Is there a way that I can put commonly used items or my own programs on them?

For now, I do not believe so.

I came to that conclusion also, after fiddling with it for a while. It looks like the user cannot do anything with the soft keys.

I will miss the nested user directories and the soft keys from earlier HP calculator incarnations.

So it seems like one of the implications here is that User and CAS variables are essentially global variables. So figuring out how to create our own Apps (which seem to support some name-spaced variables) will be more important. Fortunately, the programming language supports local variables to avoid conflicts with these global variables.
