Bug when sending text file to TI-89/Titanium

Bug when sending text file to TI-89/Titanium
January 10, 2005 12:24AM
Hello. I don't know if anyone of us are aware of this bug: well, when I sent the text files from your program to my TI-89T, such as font size, I do know that it can be changable fonts on the computer, but not on the TI-89T. For example:

Text size 1
Text size 2
Text size 3

Math Expression:
(d=sqrt((y2-Y1)^2+(x2-x1)^2)

This is what it looks like in my calculator file (disregard second block from above):

#1This is text size 1.#2
This is text size 2.
#3This is text size 3.#2

Sample Math Expression:
&E(703.1*lb)/(in2)

Where "#1" should have changed the font size smaller than the built-in TI-89/T's regular file size, "#3" font size should have been bigger than regular font size;
"&E" denotes a "Math expression" that is like a math symbol on your program (PC version).

Is there a future workaround to this? Thanks.

Hello. Thanks for your posting.
Unfortunately I am not sure what your problem is. I guess it works(although i tested it on my older Ti-89 AMS 2.05 only - TxtRider and Hibview)

Here is a test file I used:
[wordrider.net]
Text size 1
Text size 2
Text size 3
d=sqrt((y2-Y1)^2+(x2-x1)^2)

It's almost impossible to see drawn math expression(neither MS Word is able to do this-drawing math equations is really really hard).

Hello. I suppose that it only works on the TI-89 (I have AMS 2.09, HW 2), but I also own the TI-89 Titanium (AMS 3.00, HW 3); so I suppose that it's only meant to be compatible with the TI-89 but not the TI-89 Titanium, is that correct? Wished it was compatible for the TI-89T as well. Oh well.

Do you think that's the problem I have when it comes to calculator incompatiblilties? Just wondering.

Thanks for your information.
I will consult this problem with TI-gen gurus. I guess it might be some problem with file format.

Text formats for Ti89 and Ti89Titanium are same - there are no differences. So please try to do this:
Download this file - [wordrider.net]
Move this file into your TI-89Ti via TI-GraphLink(not the TiConnect) and open it with Hibview or TxtRider.
I hope it will work.

Well, I'll tell ya what. I'm assuming that most Windows XP Home/Pro versions doesn't run via TI Graph Link, right? Since TI-Connect seems either "popular" or works around new TI graphing calculators, such as the TI-84 Plus Family and the TI-89 Titanium. Well, I'll try to download the file(s) to my original TI-89 and see if that works; and maybe try to transfer that to my TI-89T. If not, maybe a future version of WordRider or TxtRider or HibView should be worked out in a future time. Well, thanks for your reply! :)

Argghh. My mistake. I forgot that TI probably didn't include support for new calculators at Graph link.
OK so try to transfer it via Ti Connect.
I guess it's not a WordRider's or Hibview's problem - the problem is with transfer.

Btw. TI Graph Link works fine with my WinXp Pro.

Hello. I've sent your file to both my TI-89 AND TI-89 Titanium... well, it doesn't appear to be the same thing like your picture as shown... I don't know what is going on. I've used TI-Connect using its "Send Device to..." thingy but still doesn't work. Is there a bug to fix or is there a certain AMS and/or HW version that needs to be worked out? Thanks.

So when you send my testing file into calc(TI-89ti) via TI-Connect - the file is corrupted - is it correct?

try to use this application [www.ticalc.org]
Maybe this can help...

Hmmmm... I do have TiLP, but I don't use it too often. I guess I should use that software and try sending those files to my calculators, huh? Actaully, I don't think it will work because for some reason, I get this error message while trying to send file(s) using TiLP (version 6.75):

Msg: No I/O resource available !
Cause: several ways. Check for:
- PortTalk device driver (parallel/serial cable under Win NT4/2000/XP)
- TiglUsb device driver (SilverLink).

And

Msg: Invalid host ID.
Cause: TiLP received an unexpected Machine ID, probably due to a transmission error.

This is what those 2 message window happens when I try to send files to either my TI-89 or TI-89 Titanium. I guess maybe an update (6.76) could resolve it. Oh well. Thanks for your help though.
