__Technical Support for V-Graph Save__

__Main Display for Number Mode__

**Button and Field Descriptions**- Create New Equation – In Number Mode, the old equation is deleted. In Variable Mode, the old equation can be saved, if desired.
- Save – Only used for Variable Mode. If the equation already exists, it is overwritten. For a new equation, a name must be entered in the Equation Name field; then follow the prompts to save the equation under the desired Category in My Library.
- Loaded Equations – Only used for Variable Mode. Displays a drop-down list of equations that have been created or loaded from one of the Libraries.
- My Library – Allows an equation to be loaded from one of the Categories in My Library. Only used for Variable Mode. However, selecting this button while in Number Mode will cause the app to change to Variable Mode.
- Main Library – Allows an equation to be loaded from one of the Categories in Main Library. Only used for Variable Mode. However, selecting this button while in Number Mode will cause the app to change to Variable Mode.
- Help/Tutorials/Contact – Provides access to (1) the Help Screen, which has pop-up descriptions of highlighted buttons, (2) several Tutorials, which programmatically demonstrate the main features of the app, and (3) a contact button, which opens the e-mail app, with info@staghornridge.com in the address field.
- Configuration – Allows setting the number of digits after the Decimal Point, the number of digits for Scientific Notation, Degrees or Radians for trigonometric functions, whether a Period or Comma is used as the Decimal Point, whether units can be displayed in the Equation when the Symbol/Number button is pressed, and whether the Unit Conversion Table is automatically displayed in Variable Mode when the Calculation Button is pressed. Also, the convergence accuracy and maximum number of iterations can be specified for implicit equations.
- Variable Mode/Number Mode – In Number Mode, the app becomes a quick, text-book display scientific graphing calculator. Equations can include y (dependent variable) and x (independent variable), and the they can be explicit or implicit (of the form y = f(x) or y = f(x,y)). The equations can be plotted and unit conversions can be made on the dependent variable value, but they cannot be saved. In Variable Mode, variables (with subscripts, superscripts, and Greek characters; descriptions; units; and values) are entered into the table (located under the Equation Field). These can then be entered into the current equation and/or saved as Constants under user-defined categories for later retrieval. (Equations can also be saved under user-defined categories for later retrieval). Unit conversions can be made on the dependent variable value. An unlimited number of equation can be loaded, and up to 3 can be graphed simultaneously.
- Display Unit Conversions Table – Pressing this button after the Calculate Button has been pressed, with cause the Unit Conversion Table to appear. This displays the results of converting the dependent variable answer into the value it would be for all of the units in the same category as the dependent variable. In the Configuration window, it is possible to select an option that will cause the unit conversion table to display after each calculation.
- Calculate – Evaluates the current equation, if no errors are present.
- Graph – Causes the Graph Display to appear and plots the current equation.
- Equation Field – Equations are created by typing on the keyboard or by selecting variable from the Variable Table located below the Equation Field. The desired location in the equation for character entry must first be selected by use of a finger or the arrow keys. Pink highlighting of elements of the equation indicates an error in the equation and prevents it from being evaluated.
- Select – Used to select the variable that will be entered into the equation. If the variable table is in editing mode (Variable Mode), then the Select Button is used to end editing.
- Dependent Variable Symbol – Symbol of Dependent Variable (for insertion into equation by pressing the Select Button).
- Independent Variable Symbol – Symbol of Independent Variable (for insertion into equation by pressing the Select Button).
- Memory Symbol – Symbol of Dependent Variable value from previous calculation (for insertion into equation by pressing the Select Button).
- Right Arrow – Moves the cursor through the equation from left to right one character at a time.
- Left Arrow – Moves the cursor through the equation from right to left one character at a time.
- Equals – Enters an Equals Sign into the equation. This is the ONLY equals button that can be used for this purpose. Also, the Equals Button will NOT evaluate the equation. The Calculate Button will evaluate the equation.
- Variable Table – Contains the Variables that can be used in the Equation.
- Units – Units for Variable. These are chosen from Unit Picker Dial screen that appears when Units field is selected.
- Dependent Variable Value – Value for Dependent Variable.
- Independent Variable Value – Value for Independent Variable. The value of the Independent variable is input using the Numeric Keypad that appears when the Variable field is selected.
- Memory Value – Value of Dependent Variable value from a previous calculation.
- Delete – Deletes one character at a time (except for exponentials, division, parentheses, and logarithmic and trigonometric functions).
- Clear – Same as the Delete Button, except that entire numbers are deleted at once, rather than one character at a time.
- Symbol/Number – Allows the variables in the equation to display either their symbols or their numeric values (and units, if this option is selected in Configuration).
