Hi,
I have bought a Casio Graphic Calculator (fx-7400G Plus) and my problem with it, is that in comparison to my scientific calculator (Casio fx-83ES) it overwrites previously typed in characters/digits. Sort of like when you press the "Insert" button on a computer keyboard and then type it would overwrite what you have already written.
On the calculator it is especially annoying and time consuming during programming.
Does anybody know a solution to turn this overwriting off and make it possible to use it like a scientific calculator?

Thanks in advance,

Hi,
Thanks for answering, but that I have already tried that and it doesnt work it does the same thing.
It basically displays a sort of like square covering the current character/digit and when I would press a key it would replace that current digit with the digit I had just pressed, exactly the same as it would without Shift->Del(Insert).

Without Shift->Del it displays a line underneath a character. Instead of the normal | cursor found on scientific calculators and computers.


Edit: The calculator looks like this: http://www.casio.com/products/Calcul.../FX-7400GPlus/

On mine it stays that way until you change it manually so I don't think you should have any problems with it switching back.

Yes, but it changes back to normal when you use the arrow keys.
