How To: Disable bell (beeping) on Calcomp 9100 digitzer

Procedure

The Calcomp 9100 digitizer beeps whenever a button is pressed on the cursor.

Answer:

To stop the beeping, edit the CAL9100 digitizer format file, and replace the initialization sequence with these two lines:

	5
27 37 86 56 13

This is the CAL9100 digform file before the changes:

 'CAL9100'		CALCOMP 9100 DIGITZER
1 DIGITIZE DEVICE #
'(A2,2F5.3)' DIGITIZER FORMAT
F NO MENU BAR
F SINGLE BUTTON MODE OFF
73.0, 1.0, 0.0 X MAX, X SCALE, X OFFSET
85.0, 1.0, 0.0 Y MAX, Y SCALE, Y OFFSET
14 KEY CONVERSION PAIRS
'1D' 1, '2D' 2, '3D' 3, '4D' 4, '5D' 5, '6D' 6,
'7D' 7, '8D' 8, '9D' 9, 'AD' 10, '0D' 0, '#D' 12, 'BD' 12, 'UU' 0

-1 NO SHUTDOWN CHARACTERS
4 STREAM MODE ON
27 37 82 13
4 STREAM MODE OFF
27 37 80 13
10 STREAM OFF WAIT TIME

This is the CAL9100 digform file after the changes:

'CAL9100'		CALCOMP 9100 DIGITZER
1 DIGITIZE DEVICE #
'(A2,2F5.3)' DIGITIZER FORMAT
F NO MENU BAR

73.0, 1.0, 0.0 X MAX, X SCALE, X OFFSET

ARCEDIT
