I will second what Brett said. Particularly the turret jog button. Also the most used buttons have to be on one screen, so you don't have to go back and forth between screens to find the Edit button for instance. Also will be nice to have the machine coords on the main screen as well.

Also, a clear LED that shows if tool length comp is in effect and a button to go to the tools screen and back to the previous page.

One thing that deffinatley needs to be addressed is standard Hotkeys. They need to be consistant among all default screens. Mill, plasma, lathe, ect. Under no circumstance should the same hotkey be assigned to 2 different functions.

Brett

Can't agree more. Took me a few ruined parts to remember that the Space button doesn't assigned to FeedHold in Turn.
