Tech Note 1058 Detail

My SPARK SLS or SPARKvue won't let me delete a function.

Affected Products:

PS-2008 SPARK Science Learning System
PS-2401 SPARKvue Single User License

Problem/Symptom:
The Delete key in the Calculator screen is "greyed out" or unavailable.

PASCO Solution:

The DELETE key within the calculator is unavailable for a function which has been used within another function or is present within a display of the lab.

SPARKvue and the SPARK Science Learning System will also not allow you to backspace (the left pointing trapezoid with an x through it) to remove the equal sign that is to the right a function that has been used in another calculation or display.

To delete a fuction, first remove it from all displays and delete other functions that include it.
