I didn't. Got pretty far, but simply couldn't convince myself that it was useful at all.

What you are describing could be handled with a simple text buffer. Since you are already in control of what is displayed on the screen, just manipulate it in memory and update or write to external memory.

If you put 'A' in row 1, column 1, you already know what is going to be in row 1, column 1.

I just see no usefulness to this at all.

When the device was designed, decades ago, there was some usefulness.
I gave the reasons behind the inclusion of this capability two months ago, in the second paragraph of reply # 6.

No offense, but write it yourself, then. lol

I did not feel that it was useful enough to spend my time writing it, testing it, debugging it, refining it and maintaining it regardless of your reasons. If you do, then write it...
