Newfangled solutions
« on: April 26, 2011, 05:45:00 PM »
Hello,

I have a problem with the Newfangled solutions.
When starting the wizard "Circular hole pattern" drilling, the X Center DRO read's 1.000 mm
When I make X Center is 0 (zero) and Y Center is 0 (zero), save the settings an run
the program, all works well.
When I run the same program another time, the X Center moves to 1.00 mm.
This problem is very inconvenient for me.

The wizards should always remember their last value used. These values are stored in the file Newfangled.set.def in The Addons\Newfangled folder. Check to see that this file is not set to read-only. If you copied the wizard from a CD it might have been set read-only

Hello Ron,

The file Newfangled.set.def is a archive file, bud, I discovered that the value You select for 'Material' appears in the Dro for X Center and the other way around.
I. most of the time  use Aluminium, i.c. Nr. 1.
If I select Brass, (5) the value for X Center will be 5
Something is wrong in this Wizard.
This Wizard is the only one I discovered, with this problem.

Ron,
I made a sticky topic for you to post the latest version to.
I tried to post the zip file with cap letters but it would not accept it.

Ron,

I'm very sorry, bud the same curiosity still exists.
I downloaded the latest version two times to be sure, bud the value for material and X Center are somehow linked together.
The Material number is copied to the Dro for X Center.
When I make X Center 0 (zero) then The Material number turns to 0.
Somehow 1 in X Center is dominant, when I make no material choice, the number is 0 even then the value for
X Center is 1

You are correct that the material DRO is the same as the X center. There was another duplicate that I had fixed. Im traveling now, I will correct this and release a new version when I get home next week. Sorry for the confusion and not checking your first report closer.
