Subject: RE: Upside down
From: TP Diffenbach (

In the long term we need to make the settings in F2 and F3

In the longer term, we need to separate the "controller" functions, like
buttons, from the functionality. This will also make porting to other
machines (with physical buttons) easier.

 From what I understand so far on this thread, you are talking about
replacing the 'down' setting in the f3 menu from
'LCD Mode' to something that Rotates the Display 180 degrees.

Can't we just add the option to the f2 or f3 menu instead of replace one
that already exists? It seems to me that there
is room for an 'up' option on both the f2 and f3 screen. If that's what
you're already planning on doing, please forgive
me and ignore this message. :)
