Screen DRO Never Correct On Startup
« on: May 26, 2009, 12:23:11 PM »
Each time I exit and re-start Mach3, the DRO readings are never the same as when I closed the program. They have no relation to the actual location of any axis. I have to write down each axis location before closing the program and then type that setting back in when I re-start.  Drives me scrappies!!!  ??? ::)  Can anyone tell me where and what to set so this will be correct???

Thanks. Cas.

Persistant DRO on General Config page should sort that for you, however remember that really you should be homing on each restart of Mach as steppers can twitch slightly and thus your axis may not be in exactly the same position you think it is.
