On the ports and pins under spindle have you check to use spindle sync?

First be sure oyu have all the wiers set right in Ports and pins. Use the diagnostic screen and pus the switches with your finger, one at a  time and observe that correct LED lights for each function- note that the LEDs are labeled M1 M2 M3 instead of X Y Z. no good reason for that, it just is.

On the setttings screen ther eis a button for auto back off limits. Check it, it will let you jog slowly off a limit switch

This is all well explained in the Mach install manual

Id say 'dont do that'

Mach has some standards and conventions. It expects to find screen sets in Mach3 folder. It expects to find wizards in Mach3\Addon\WizName If you put .set files eleswhere Mach wont find them.

Screen 4 can handle it all, you just need to tell it where to put the files- it does not know if you are writing a wizard or a base screen set.

At this time I think the combined screen/wizard is a 'feature' and I dont want to give it up, but it would be possible to do a version like that.

The plan now is to use the vb compiled code ability, so without the source you could not edit the screens- as it is with the Newfangled wizards. For a package that is sold it seems to need some kind of code protection.

However, you should be able to lift an entire screen, and its compiled button code to use in your screen. You could not see or edit my buttons, but could drop them onto your screen. Might be tricky, but shold work.

406  Mach Discussion / Machscreen Screen Designer / Re: Image on an Image on: April 02, 2011, 09:18:31 PM
I solved my problem by not doing i.

Instead of one big background image for all the screen I broke the background into two parts, a top and bottom, leaving the center of the screen clear.

Now  I can place my small images there and they appear just fine.

I see a lot of screens designed with single background images, so it must be possible, but isit just alimit that you cant put images on the image. Buttons, LEDs etc seem OK, images dont work.

Anyway, I have a work-around.

thanks

I am working on a new screen set. It has a background image on page 0, obviously to be seen on every page.

In one area I want to place a small image specific to each screen. I created a few jpgs and placed them on the screens.

Two of them work just as expected- the small image appears over the background.

Two others show in Machscreen, but are not visible when Mach runs. All were created the same way, placed in the same way. I tried on one screen placing an image that works fine on another screen, but it wont show.

Any idea what going on? I cant do any layer switch because the images are on different screens.

There are two licenses needed. Mach1Lic.dat is the mach license. It will show up in the help about box.

WizLIc.dat is only for the Newfangled wizards. The help box know nothing about it. If you do not have it you can run the wizards, see the code, but when you return to Mach from the wizard the code is deleted and you get the message in the code window about unlicensed wizard.

Are we talking about the the right license here?

That is going to have to answered by Brian. The wizard has no control over the license, its read by Mach when the wizard exits and the code is replaced by the message.

Ill talk to Brian about it.

Sounds like something is wrong with the license. Are you sure it is correctly named? Windows likes to not display known types, so it might show WizLic without the .dat I saw that once, so I added the .dat, but now the real file name becomes WizLic.dat.dat

If you donyt have a backup of your license file on another machine, then contact support@machsupport.com, they should be able to replace the license.
