Change profile name?
« on: January 26, 2010, 03:11:14 PM »
I misnamed a profile that I use. I have not figured out how to rename it. Is it even possible to rename a profile?

Just find the xml you renamed and then right click and choose rename, it will be, or should be, in the Mach3 folder.

Thanks. I was trying to find a way to change the name from within the program and now See that I can change it at the desktop icon before opening Mach. Senior moments seem to come more regularly these days.

Hood: That didn't work. I went out to the shop and booted up the shop computer. I had already changed the name on the desktop icon. I went in to Mach III through c drive machIII and renamed every file that was named Hardinge. When I open Mach III the screen profile name at the bottom still lists Hardinge.
When I first installed machIII, I set up a profile named Hardinge only to realize that it was the mill program and not the lathe program. So bottom line, I still haven't been able to change the profile name. I did reboot the computer after the name changes today. So I am still baffled.

Ok go to Mach3 folder and double click the Mach3.exe, the loader should open, what do you see in the list? Is the profile you want to use in the list?
If it is the shortcut on the desktop you are wanting to change then you right click and choose properties then edit the tarket to point to the profile you want it to be, just make sure you keep the correct spacing.

Hood: I see the profile names under the session profile screen but right clicking does nothing. The only options are create profile, delete profile and cancel or OK. Right clicking does not bring up a screen.

I am meaning the desktop shortcut
Right click on it and properties and then change the target name to the profile you want.
