Touch gestures may not be supported in all apps, editors, and input forms, and their function might vary. Keep the following
guidelines in mind:
• In Plot view, if a 2-finger pinch zoom gesture is performed horizontally, the zoom is performed on the x-axis only. If a
2-finger pinch zoom is performed vertically, the zoom is performed on the y-axis only. If a 2-finger pinch zoom is
performed diagonally, a square zoom is performed (that is, the zoom is performed on both axes). In the Geometry app,
only the diagonal zoom is supported.
• In Numeric view, if a 2-finger pinch zoom is performed vertically, the zoom is performed on the currently selected row of
the table. A zoom in decreases the common difference in the x-values and a zoom out increases the common difference
in the x-values. If a 2-finger pinch zoom is performed horizontally, the column width changes.
Many calculator settings are user-configurable, such as angle measure, number
format, entry format, decimal mark, and so on. To view or change a setting, press
SH (Settings). The Home Settings window appears. This window is an input
form—that is, a window that provides one or more fields where you can enter data or
select an option. To change the content in a field, use the cursor keys to move to the
field. Then make your change and press E.
Alternatively, you can just tap the field or field label, and do one of the following:
• If the field allows you to enter data of your choice, tap the field, enter your data, and
• If the field allows you to choose an item from a menu, tap it twice and select the item you want.
• If the field is a toggle field—one that is either selected or not selected—tap once to select it and tap again to set the
option to its alternate value.
Note that there are four pages of home settings. Tap
font size, calculator name, output display format, menu item format, time, date, color theme, and shading color.
The third page of settings will primarily be of interest to the supervisors of
examinations, who need to ensure that the calculator is used appropriately by students
during an examination. Supervisors can disable certain functions of a student's
calculator for a set period of time, with the disabling controlled by a password. For
example, to set the HP Prime calculator to basic exam mode, in the Configuration
field, select Basic Mode, and then tap
In basic exam mode, the following settings are configured:
• The HP Prime calculator memory is erased.
• The green light at the top of the calculator blinks.
To exit this mode, connect the calculator to either a computer or another HP Prime calculator via the included micro-USB
cable. For more information, see the HP Prime Graphing Calculator User Guide.
If your HP Prime calculator supports wireless connectivity, you will see a fourth page of home settings. On this page, a
drop-down box enables you to select an HP Wireless Classroom Network. A connection to an HP Wireless Classroom
Network requires the HP Wireless Kit (purchased separately). See the HP Connectivity Kit User Guide for more details.
In the Home view, you can tap the icons in the upper-right corner of the display to open the Quick Settings menu. The actions
you can take in this menu include the following:
• Tap one of the angle icons to change the angle measure mode (radians or degrees).
