I prefer Screen4 but a lot prefer MachScreen, both available from the downloads page. There should be a few videos in the Screen section showing how to use Screen4 and  one on the video page http://www.machsupport.com/videos/ down at the bottom.
You can either edit a standard screen or make a new one from scratch. You will also likely need the OEM list which you will either find on the wiki or there is a downloadable xls file in one of the stickies at the top of this forum page.

It is OEM codes for buttons DROs LEDs etc, some of them are available in screen4 from drop down lists in buttons etc but some are not and you have to enter the OEM code for whatever you are wanting the button to be.

You will find MachScreen the easiest to use.

I could just about manage a button with Screen4  ::)

I have redone the lathe screen using Machscreen it is on the Beta screens forum

You can download it from the products page from this website http://www.kd-dietz.de/index_eng

That is why i do not use Screen4, it is too hard, quirky, need i go on.

I think i know who voted for it, a lone voice in the wilderness ;D ;D ;D
