at least i know which way to go ..so its off to cpc then :D. thanks very much matey thats a great help and a lot off me plate
the boss is convinced he can do it by altering the com settings and resetting the pins mind you he spent two hours today trying to configure a camera with no drivers ..in and out of wizards with  me saying d-o-w-n-l-o-a-d the drivers from sweex every ten minutes
then low and behold he produces the disk from his desk......!!!!!//////?????? ::) ::) ::)

please forgive my ignorance I have neglected to explore this forum for a while and am still getting to know mach3 although we are mightily impressed at last we can conrtoll the mill without getting frustrated even thogh weve not used many of the features or settings in mach3 we are beggining to see all the answers to our questions ...using mps pro2003 was like riding a trike with the stableisers still on remember when you were three?? ....ha ha now its like I have a trike with a v8..... mmmmm maybee!!!!..(not that mps isnt good for breaking the milk teeth becuase it is...I just wish the reseller had realised mach 3 was out there it would have done him a lot of good to think ahead.
anyway Ii have a question ... is there a list of keyboard short cuts? or more to the point can I rotate A from a key ? and can I plunge also from a shortcut?? if I put a joystick on will that give me greater controll i have plenty of little jobs that require manual operation i know the arrow keys operate XY but Ii need ZA too im sure it can be ??
thanks you very much
