I guess since I wasn't using spindle control the CW F5 didn't register. Yes, it's there.
Thank you. :)

Is F5 for spindle control documented in the User or Installation Guides?
Is there a list of all the built in keyboard shortcuts?

I have a wood router as the spindle. I would like to be able to turn on/off the router from the Mach 3 Config screen or keyboard when Gcode is not running.
I only have an outboard AC power switch now.
I think I can get the breakout board and Mach 3 output pins figured out for M3/4/5.
Is there a way to create a MPG or keyboard short cut to toggle the breakout board pin on/off?
And what hardware device do I purchase and install to interface between the logic voltage and 120 vac?

I changed direction. I returned the Microsoft XBox Game Controller. After many hours on line with MicroSoft an online help person asked me to read the package carefully. That's when I noticed that the controller required XP SP2. That's 'XP SP2' not 'SP2 or higher'.
I bought a SteelSeries 3GC controller at Game Stop for $20 and loaded JoyPad Plugin for Mach3 V2. It still took a lot of reading and rereading the User Manual but it is loaded and works.

Now give me directions to the thread that discusses a touch block for zeroing axis.

Head way! I can now load ScreenGrabber, I've got the game controller loaded and marked Yes in HID devices, and Start Screen Designer working. However, the game controller appears to be sending a signal that KeyGrabber is interpreting as an Axis 3 Minus 2. Watch Dog 1 keeps flashing several times a second. Using Windows Game Controller the game controller checks good and stable. Is there something in XP or Screen Grabber to check?

I'm trying to program a game controller. I initiate KeyGrabber. When I click Start Screen Designer I get an error message Unable to run Mach3Screen.exe. How do I correct this?

I've used Game Controllers to calilbrate my joy stick. Now what do I have to do to get Mach3 to find it?

Doing the grab and move twice worked. Thank You! :)

General Mach Discussion / fly out screen covers main screen
« on: March 26, 2013, 10:14:13 PM »
I've switched to a larger monitor and now would like to get fly out screen to appear to right of main screen so that it does not cover the tool path or spindle area. How do I do that? When I have either the main screen up or the main screen with the fly out screen there is blank space to the right of the screens.
