Another Plot type for the HP49/HP49+

In the HP48/49 menu option (X,Y) from the PICTURE environment does not show the true pixel coordinates of the cursor, with (0,0) at the upper left corner. These coordinates are important in painting, replacing subgrobs, etc. None of the existing plot types allows a corresponding PPAR setting. Now, if driving into PICTURE with PAINT, the (X,Y)-option does what we want. PPAR setting is not affected by PAINT which also respects the current PICT size. We propose to assign PAINT to the leftshift-hold LeftArrow key. Then you can visit with PAINT the Picture environement also during programming for getting data etc. The command line is preserved during such a visit. PAINT belongs also to the assignments offered by Keyman.
