Hi Liudr,Still busy optimizing to the ultimate Phi panel?I like layout 1 and 2 the most. The layouts 3 & 4 are too messy, more chance on errors imho.idea:Have you ever thought about rotating a 4 x 16 by 90°? to make a (virtual) 16 x 4 LCD, which includes a rotated font?It would need a wrapper class around the normal LCD class to get addressing right (student project?) Call it the VLCD() class for the Verti panel with VertiFont?Just thinking out loud,
Big fan of the rotary control, was planning to add a pot as a rotary control on my lap timer project - using a button to scroll through 500 laps you start seriously thinking of alternatives by about lap 80.Duane Brcarduino.blogspot.com
About the vertical fonts, it will be hard for the character displays. There are only 8 custom character memory for the display so there won't be enough to make out the vertical display plus the 4*8 matrix can't be broken. I'll have to use a graphic display (next step!).

They look great, now if you offer a version of the rotary encoder model pre loaded with this you will make a lot of people happy - http://rcarduino.blogspot.com/2012/09/lap-timer-build-along-part-3-timer.htmlWhat do you sell them for ? are they pre-assembled and will you be including the rotary encoder ? If its yes, yes and yes I might convert the lap timer to run on them, less soldering and sourcing of parts will open the project up to more users Duane B
