Hi Hood,

I didn't think memory space would be a problem. But if it is, no problem. I reduced the program memory space in version V1.38.f.

My humble opinion, is that anyone not voting for Machscreen, haven't used it, yet ;)

What do you do for design a screen 1024-768 ?

Use Screen 4 running at 1280x1024. :)

I have used both Screen4 and Machscreen for detailed screen designs. Since I switched over to Machscreen my productivity has increase 3 folds. My vote goes to Machscreen.

My vote goes to MachScreen. I used it the other day for the first time and found it very intuative and the layout is simple, very similar to the Visual Basic development software I sometimes use where you have a window sidebar selection to change the properties.

Only two annoyances I found, The dropdown box for the selection of Mach screen page. With the previous version it worked ok, I downloaded and install the latest version
and found the box does not dropdown so you have to click the scroll until your numbers there and then select.

The other thing happened with both versions, on saving the file I get a errorbox  with filename name or directory name syntax wrong but it saves ok.

All in all, It works without weird things happening and you can make changes to you screen easily.

Hi cjmerlin,

did you deinstall the old version before you installed v1.38.f?
When do you get the save error, when saving, or saving as?
Could you please give me the complete error message?
