Hello Hood,
I was unable to copy a screenset with the changes I would like made but the changes are easily explained.
On the cycle screen I would like an led indicator for single block showing it is activated and where the "FROM HERE" button is 
I would like it replaced with an "M01" button with a led indicator showing it is active when in use, if you could reposition the M01 button closer to cycle start and feedhold it would be great if not then the "FROM HERE" location is fine for the button as long as it is available to use.
Both current button locations are fine as is as long as they are active and have indicators to show when they are active.
These two changes would put us in operation.
Sorry it took sooo long to reply back but my company has had me on the road for the last few weeks...fun, fun, fun!
All I need is a downloadable working screenset with the two changes listed.
I am lost as far as placing buttons and getting them to function on my own, GOD knows I have spent many hours at this pc trying to do this that is why I have been bugging you...for this I apologize.
You have the best screenset available on the forum as far as I have found, it is practical, simple, and easy on the eyes.
I really appreciate your help and want to thank you for assisting me.

Hello Hood,
After many, many months away from this retro-fit I am now back at it as of yesterday.
Altho I am pretty computer savy I cannot remember how to open up the blue screenset to edit to my application.
I have three tweeks I would like to make to the blue set for our lathe here.
Features I need added: how do I make the single block appear active when in single mode either with a light or color change, how do I add a spindle reverseing button, and finally I will need a button to activate an optional stop M01.
These three features will finalize this retro fit and get the brass off of my big butt.
I would really appreciate any of your help and also would be willing to reimburse you if you were to say make these changes for me and email me the screenset ready to use.
If you are not able to do this for me where can I find the editing software. I have screen tweek installed but it makes a garbled mess of the blue screenset when I open it up.

I have been around a while and have used alot of different systems over the years.
I purchased a system from machmotion for my lathe with version mach3 R3.043.022.
I use GibbsCam 2011 turn and mill in the shop and we use G54, G55, G56, G57, coordinates and so forth for tool location from a set home position.
My question is can I use this same format in Mach 3?
I want to touch off tools enter the amounts in "X and Z" put a G55 or other into the program and go.
If it is possible could someone in layman terms explain how I can go about this IE do this, change that type of thing.
I have been messing around with this for about a week and really need to know if this is possible.

Thank you for your reply....I have dowmloaded screen4 and opened it up seems to work fine but I am still  confused on how to make the single step light appear active.
What I want is for the button to change color or have some indication of activation when depressed.
Thank You,

I am using the Blue Screenset for our lathe.
It is quite literally great and works fine.
There is one draw back to my application that I wouls like to change or have changed for me.
There is no indicator light for "single block" letting the operator know if it is active or not.
In the upper right corner of the screen there are the indicator lights there are two light I can live without.
Can someone please let me know if "single block" and an indicating light can be added to the light bar or if one that already exists can be changed.
Thank You,
