Sneak Peek of next KX3 UI


#1

Thanks to the hard work of Richard @OK3AR , the next release of Wizkers:Radio will include a super cool improvement for the KX2/KX3 and K3 radios: pixel-perfect fonts for both VFO A and VFO B!

Creating a font is not an easy job, but, in my humble opinion, the results speak for themselves and are totally worth it:

You can expect a new release of Wizkers:Radio in the next couple of days if all goes well!

Ed, thank you for the post: a) The matrix fonts are not that complicated, although some experience in creating it requires too. There has been a problem that has KX3 the lower display only 13-segment matrix, so the layout of the character table - especially special: o) - is totally different than a standard 14-segment font. The difference is, that the middle bar in the font is only one segment. For the 14-segment font is the middle bar consists of two segments. It was therefore necessary every character on the KX3 show and visually create.
I’m glad I could contribute at least a small contribution to the development Wizkers radio!

Hello Richard,

Good work for the KX3 fonts!
Just for know, I would like to use them in a personal HAM graphic design … There is a way that I can obtain a copy?
I’m on OSX platform.

Again thanks for your work

Best regards
