    edit energia preferences

    I am having some vision problems and reading the screen is becoming difficult. I am trying to edit the preference file to make text “bold”. I changed this line in preferences to: “editor.font=Monospaced,bold,20” it had no effect. I then changed it to: “editor.font=Monospaced,strong,20” it also had no effect. Can someone please help with this problem, thank you
  2. I need help, I am trying to get my nokia 5110 working with a CC3200 launchpad. I was able to get the Nokia working with the msp430g2553 using the LCD_5110 library. But no Luck with the CC3200, I also tried it with the LCD_5110_SPI library. I am hoping someone will share a working example for the Nokia on a CC3200. I tried the suggestions in this post. https://forum.43oh.com/topic/7768-problem-with-cc3200-and-lcd5110-library/?tab=comments#comment-62408 Thank you.

    Multitasking in Energia for CC3200

    I am having the same problem with The EMT multitask.. I am using energia ver 17 with cc3200 Launchpad. If run my program and select The “LAUNCHPAD W/3200 (80MHZ)” the same sketch compiles and runs without error. I can compile and upload Other multisketch examples (blink three leds) and they run okay. It appears the Problem is with Serial and Serial1 functions, Please help
