It doesn't appear to, but if you click it, you shouldn't be able to rotate or zoom anymore. I guess I need to see if there's an LED to indicate on or off. I think there may be, actually.

Thanks.

Yes, that is correct, it does not zoom or rotate.

I've run into a few issues with this screen.

One, small icons don't scale well, neither up, nor down.

Two, my 1Ghz machine control PC reboots when I try to load a Flash screen. Could just be the PC, as it can be a bit finicky. It'll also occasionally reboot if I copy files over the network while Mach is running. But as long as I just run Mach, it works great, and it was $20.

So, since I'm not going to be changing my PC, I have to abandon the Flash screen for now. Which means, back to Screen4. All I'll mainly lose is the cool rollover highlights. I can cheat with the tabs, the transition just won't be as smooth as in Flash.

But, I still have the scaling issue with the small icons, as well as some text labels. I don't like the look of the labels in Screen4, so I use bitmap labels.

The solution is to design the screen in the resolution I'll be running it at, which is 1024x768, which actually gives me about 1016x710 to work with. It won't scale up well, but looks very good running at the designed resolution. So, for the 5th time, I'm starting over again. :)

Hello Ger21. i'm a bit new to forum and to all CNC stuff but last couple of days been searching for some good looking mach3 screens. First time i installed mach i was  :o and since then i cooled a bit but still don't like how it looks. How far did you progress with making windows-look-a-like mach3 screen,is there some working version of it? I'm in process of making my own DIY cnc machine so i'm checking in advance program support so when i finish cnc i can start to practice on real material.
