Post by: joecar on September 07, 2017, 09:34:18 pm
Is there any way to have shift left << and shift right >> buttons...?

And maybe a to_the_power_of ** button.

Added << and >> buttons for next build (under E and F). Don't have a great place for ** other than near the =.  If the = button was smaller, then there would be room for 3 more buttons (assuming the = was the same size as the other 3).

The = button would be ok if its size is 2x instead of 4x.

Also, the bitwise logic operator buttons (And&, Or|, Xor^, OnesC~) can have their captions abbreviated (&, |, ^, ~)...

( or have an option to show full or abbreviated captions )

( most of us know the C bitwise logic operators; anyone who doesn't know will learn quickly )

this allows these buttons to be smaller.

Smaller bit wise operators allows for a better arrangement. Done for next build

No way to force a width. It tries to be smart about it. Let us know if you see an issue. Negative numbers are the most difficult to be smart about in hex.
