Dan,

Brett posted a new install in the Announcements and updates thread.  Have a look at it.  I think you will like it.  Smiley

There is now a choice of editors for the DROs.

I like it a lot, Steve. Much, much better!!! Thank you!

Hi Steve,

Thanks. Just downloaded the new build and playing with it. So far looks good.

Yet another question: In Mach3 you had to close the program for changes and settings to be remembered. So if you had power loss, and you didn't restart Mach prior to it, all your changes have been lost. How is it in Mach4? If I change offsets, tool offsets, etc., are they being saved instantaneously, or waiting for restart of Mach4?

Thanks Steve. For the protocol, it seems to be machine 1.0000 for each motor here.

What about the single click highlighting of the DROs - are you considering this? I still think that this is a must for touch screens. Also, the cursor is quite confusing. I enter as number in the X DRO, hit Enter, and then the cursor moves down to the Y DRO, allowing me to type in there, but hitting the Enter key, doesn't save the number there. So could the cursor just disappear after you hit Enter and not move to subsequent DROs?

Hi Steve,

Start Mach4, go to the MDI command "G0 X0 Y0 Z0" (or whatever), restart Mach4 and I want to see the DROs show the last location: X0 Y0 Z0. We used to have a setting for this in Mach3 under general Config.

Also related to this, while not as important, is having the option to be asked if I want the fixture to be saved before exiting, like it was in Mach3.

Can we have the DRO's persistent after restarting MAch4?

Russ,

It does show movement here with no file loaded. But what's wrong with it is that it leaves traces where it passes. This is as well as when a file is loaded.

LOL...I am not a programmer, Scott. Could barely do VB, let alone this whole new to me LUA thing...

Not asking you to do this. Appreciate all your input anyway!

Thanks Brett.

This is real nice Scott. Next thing would be allowing setting "Jog Follow" independently for each view.... Wink

Worked on a quick little routine this morning while watching the news.

I like to know the percent of completion the program I am running.


That's really cool Vince. Very neat.
This just shows % of total lines of code irrespective of the actual time it takes for the file to complete, right ?
If so, how difficult would it be to do similar by displaying a running  % of TIME remaining ?

Very interesting, thanks for posting,
Russ

Yes, this is a nice thing. Thanks for sharing, Craig.

But, could we keep this thread strictly for Mach4 bug reports and related comments? And open new threads for other topics. Otherwise the thread is getting cluttered with all sorts of other things and the bugs are getting missed by Brian and Steve and it's not leading to anywhere.

Dan
