Most typical noise issues are on the E-stop or limit switches lines. Based on the photo I suspect the E-stop wire that is looped around the back of the monitor, (inherently emits high emf & generated voltage of over 300 volts to drive the screen). Or If you have a separate monitor try to unplug the one in the cabinet and use one off to the side to see if that monitor is an issue. But id suspect it is something simple. Not like you changed anything in the computer connections. Just rearranged things.

found where to set position  Tongue

its under ManTabs, forgot I guess, like i said its been months.  Grin
  Lips Sealed

machiner: the only thing that can be read and controlled is what is in the list on the left. here is where I am reading the register.
but from your original question, you made it sound like the button did not work. (it does, just pretty much limited at this time)
could be pretty cool tool with some additional options.

LOL, that's one step backwards to me! used to be able to do it from the screen edit page.

I fought that issue before when i was playing with creating screens. And created a function that made sure that the groups were in location in the load script. Maybe its just that new mach4 screen set as I just used it as a test for the text box for machiner.
Left the warning for others to beware and enlightened.

Not sure why they dropped that edit position feature or at least made it default 0,0 position for the whole page group, I just assumed i'd never have to edit the xml file any longer now that they have copy, paste, export, import & insert abilities.

I have not edited a screen in months so it was kind of a ______ experience.

the only thing i see that can be done, is reading a register. (so not sure what id use a text box for other than reading and I assume writing to a register, sorry)

And not sure why i can not re-position the whole group of items in the screen set, they got moved down on the last save, testing this text box out.
(warning always make sure you scroll to the top of the screen before saving a screen set)

now i can not find where the position controls are for the whole group.  Huh
