Hi cjmerlin,

what OS are you using?
do you have white space characters in the path filename?

Ah, That could be it, I have been saving a file called "ZX Mill",  Machscreen is saving it as "ZXMill".

This could also be causing the other problem that when Mach3 starts I have no screen loaded because my XML is called "ZX Mill"

My OS is Win2000

Hi cjmerlin,

there is still the problem with the combobox, which doesn't expand. Could you uninstall all older versions and install version V1.38.f or V1.38.g. If the problem is still the same, could you please send me your set-file and tell me what you have done step by step?
You can find my email address under the help menu.

 forgot to try the MachScreen yesterday but have just done it. My workshop computer is much happier now and I dont notice any slowdown.
I do notice my DROs don't show the proper colour on the screen even though there is the proper colour showing in the info box, see pic.

Hi Hood,

thank you for testing. Do you have the DRO skinned (bitmap laying over DRO)?

Ahh operator error.  ;D ;D ;D

If you select two elements that overlap you can swap the layers to get the correct visual appearance, it's on the right click menu

Could well be that Phil, then again dont have to bother with that in screen4 so kind of supports my thoughts that Screen 4 does what I want in a simple manner like myself ;)

Hi Hood,

I'm not sure. the problem is overlapping two elements. How is you skin look alike? Could you please check "Show overlaying elements for selection" in options -> Settings sheet Generic prog settings. Click the DRO. Does a window popup showing more than 1 element. If so, what elements are shown?
