Where are your DROs and how do you zero an axis from this screen?

The Run Program button will take you to the Run Screen. This screen is just for loading code, but I figured it'd be nice to be able to home and jog the machine there too. That way, you can start Mach3, home the machine, load the code and go.

Screen 4 is not that bad, once you get the hang of it. However, I do the images in 1280x1024, but set up the screen at 1024x768, because Screen4 makes it hard to select anything when at 1280x1024. I like to copy and paste in the blank area, and there isn't one at 1280x1024.

The trickiest thing so far were the MPG LED's. Getting the dual states set up so they don't move left and right when toggling the states. And the fact that I had to label them to save space, made me have to make 8 instead of 1. Also, the gradient background forces me to make extra LED's so the edges blend in correctly. :)

The built in wizards may not end up what I have them labeled, btw. Just threw in some placeholders until I get to that part. :)

I need to create a folder to put the LED's and images in, so I guess I need a screen name. Any suggestions? :)

I kinda like Aqua Mach. I thought about Mach Mac, but the buttons are too square. Ocean Blue is too british.

How about The Shiznit? ;)

Actually, I think I'm going to go with something simple.
