I still want 8*y sprites that can be any height sometime. ;D  For instance, 8*4...

Yeah that would be cool, especially for custom fonts. :D
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

AFAIK this got ignored, and it's the root of many ram clears for me...
I think I found something that's both an incompatibility issue and a feature request.
Can the instant goto be made compatible with CalcUtil's "save screen" option?
The save screen is when you quit out of the program editor it asks if you want to save changes or not, very useful :) but it causes crashes with axe :P

Shouldn't this go in bug reports? ???

Well, It's kind of both :P
I think the Bug reports thread is for unexplained things, but I guess I'll do that anyway.

Changing some of the drawing commands so that they work with the back-buffer/arbitrary buffers, like Text() and Circle().

Yes, that would be great ;D
IDK about arbitrary buffers though...
What would also be nice would be sprite-like manipulation of most every buffer-related command, but that's a lot to add :P
Syntax like Pt-Change(Line(5,5,20,5))r or something.
That is pretty complex tho...

How would Pt-Change( take one argument, though? And doing that would add a few more bytes to every drawing routine to restore HL, which might not be used.

IDK anything about asm, except it's complicated :P
I was thinking, like there's the r modifier and such, that other tokens can be used the same way.

Can I request some sort of sign function that would return the sign (65535, 0, or 1) of a number? Too bad sign{} is already in use though...

Feature request: nibble read/write command option to do the opposite endian-ness of the current nibble routines.

That sounds like a good idea. It would get complicated for Horizontal , though, so maybe just Vertical ?

Nah, as it's easy enough to implement yourself...
Vertical +2 is Copy(L6+24,L6,744)
Basically, Copy(L6+12(X),L6,768-12(X)) ;D

Edit:  That may be "Vertical -".  I'm not sure which is which anymore. :P
