As far as I know there are two different meanings of the word "reset":
- to restore an object/value to a previous/initial state - that's the most widely use of the word;
- to set the value/state a second time.
But, is it common to use "reset" with the second meaning? For me it makes more sense to distinguish the two meanings by using "re-set" on the second one. But, does "re-set" even exist?
For example, what would be most acceptable in the following examples?
The thermostat is now set to 20 ºC. You can make it colder or warmer by resetting/re-setting it [to a different value].
"Production stop" works simply by resetting/re-setting the end time [to a different value but not to the default one].
