Mach3 ScreenTweak C1 // hotkeys jog control
« on: March 16, 2010, 06:08:43 PM »

1. I would need Mach3ScreenTweak version C1, but the download link http://www.machsupport.com/Downloads/Mach3ScreenTweak.exe on the wiki page http://www.machsupport.com/MachCustomizeWiki/index.php?title=Standard_Hotkeys makes an error. I do have version B1, but there I can't yet see the hot keys.

2. I would need to have hotkeys x y z for mpg#1 axis selection, instead of ALT-A. They should work on all joggeable pages, not just the jog fly-out. (probably I could make global invisible buttons, assign them the hotkeys x y z and do what is needed (OEMbutton 185 thru 187). How to I generate invisible but enabled buttons? or how to handle hot keys without buttons?

3. The global jog hotkeys (up-down-left-right arrows, pageup-pagedown 4up-4down) do work when the "Jog mode button" is on the screen, as I have read in the documentation.  What is the "Jog mode button" (how is its presence recognized by the global jog hotkeys?) Mach3 definitely behaves this way, requiring the presence (and turning-on) of the jog mode button.

Thank you for giving me a helping hand.

well, I found it myself -

1. I will use MachScreen instead of (unavailable) Mach3ScreenTweak version C1. MachScreen (v1.40a) does list hotkeys.

3. Mach3 looks for the presence of a button with OEMButton Code 103, which means Jog Mode Toggle. Then it enables jog keys.

Sorry for asking in the first place.
