DT71: Feature request - Remember last measurement mode

Post by Anatoli »

This is a minor annoyance in usability which I believe could be trivially corrected.
1. The usual pattern of my usage of DT71 on a particular session is to use it to carry out the same type of measurement - eg voltage, resistance, capacity, etc. So, for example, I measure voltage, put the tool aside, do some work, pick the tool, measure voltage again...
2. Sometimes it takes quite a bit of time to do other work, so the tool auto shuts down (as it should)
3. The problem is that when it wake u, it always defaults to the same mode (Rx)
4. What I want is for the tool to "remember" the last measurement mode (for example, Vx) and automatically switch to it on waking up.
5. The rest of the behaviour should stay the same - eg I should be able to change if I have to, etc, etc

Adafruit doesn't manufacture this product, it's from Miniware. See https://e-design.com.cn/Product/555593.html.

They may be receptive you your suggestion which, IMO, is a good one.
