@ken57093 From your picture it looks like the baud rate maybe set wrong on your serial monitor. It should be 115200 baud

RE: How to use the angle sensor?
My apologies guys, I presumed you were using the m5go or fire as I am. If you are using the gray or black core models you will need to use jumper cables to attach the angle sensor to the pins on the bottom of the core as shown in this picture. it is not possible to connect the angle sensor to 22 or 23 as they are digital inputs, for the angle sensor we need an analog input or ADC (analog to digital converter) pin, so this is only possible on pins 35 and 36. try to connect as I show in these pictures and try again, it should display the numbers on both the serial monitor and the screen.!(http://imagehosting.biz/image/6ut
RE: Cahnge Font Size in Python
To my understanding the fonts supported by micropython are bitmap fonts and are thus unscalable. However there are bigger and smaller sizes of some of the fonts on the M5 for instance the dejavu font has 12pt, 18pt and 24pt.
You can set the font by calling the command
micropython only supports .fon files an otherwise outdated font format. I managed to find a handful of other .fon fonts and put them in the fonts folder in the m5's flash. However thats not enough to use those fonts, they need to be setup in whichever script relates to the font, and I have not found it yet, no mention in the lcd module of the fonts.
I will keep trying to add more fonts and if I have any progress I will report my findings here
RE: MicroPython lcd.qrcode is not work
@komikoni Hi and sorry for the late reply. I tested myself and you are correct the lcd.qrcode is missing from the m5cloud firmware. I had a look in the REPL and noticed it was missing.
see this screenshot https://ibb.co/njC2aA
As the small development team we have has been fully focusing its efforts on Ui flow firmware of late I cannot foresee the m5cloud firmware being updated any time soon.
I was wondering since uiflow is more feature rich than cloud now I was wondering why you prefer cloud over uiflow
I'm sure you already figured it out but the lcd.qrcode command is used in this way
lcd.qrcode('insert web url here', xposition, yposition, scale factor)
lcd.qrcode('https://microsoft.com', 72, 32, 176)
hope that helped, I will look into the problem to see if there are any alternative solutions
RE: m5stack_index.json file signature verification failed
Your cries are heard. The forum will be getting an overhaul pretty soon. Thanks for your patience
RE: lcd.setRotation() Not enabled?
lcd.setRotation() requires a number 0-3 in the parentheses for each orientation, and it seems to clear the screen every time it rotates. I found I could print text in all 4 orientations of the screen if I used the print command after set Rotation. like so:
hope that answers your question. I'm back from christmas hols now and i've seen you've been busy
working on your own manual for the m5stack, awesome stuff, I'd love to connect with you and see how we can cooperate on a manual my email is email@example.com
