TI Nspire modifying the home screen
« on: December 26, 2014, 03:09:38 pm »
Hi,
I recently got the TI Nspire CX CAS for Christmas and applied Ndless to it, and I've been very happy with it.
One thing that really bothers me is the home screen, it takes an extra step if I want to just turn it on and use it.
Is there a way to disable the home screen or modifying it so it opens a program on start? If not, is there a way of modifying the layout of the homescreen so the shortcuts on the bottom link to other things like custom applications.
Coming from the TI-84, I'm used to the calculator shells that come with it (shout outs to Doors CS), are there shells for the TI Nspire? I haven't been able to find any on ticalc.org.
Cheers,
Ninja3047

There is a theme editor: http://tiplanet.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=11123&hilit=theme#p134618 (only works with certain version of ndless if I recall correctly...) and that's about it for now. No Doors for NSpire :(
Anyways, I don't think the extra step is very bothersome when turning on the calculator. Just press A or the scratchpad button to instantly open the scratchpad after turning it on.
