Hi,

Something odd happened today, and it's not mentioned in my Marklin Running Digital book and Google doesn't find anything either. On one of my Mfx trains, some of the function icons suddenly had little numbers in the corner.

The numbers range from 1 to 3, with several buttons having the same numbers. Some buttons do not have numbers.

Any idea what this means? Is it related to the recent software update? I've only seen it on one train.

Thanks

This additional notation was introduced with last months firmware updates.

Numbering of similar function icons
Similar locomotive functions with the same representation are now numbered in the representation.

Thanks,

Seems rather pointless to me, how is an arbitrary number going to make me remember any more than an arbitrary position.

If you want unique icons then you can load them,

If, however , you have a lot of similar sounds - e.g. various station announcements - then a number seems like a good option
