I've heard that there may be macro bugs in .66, although none of my users have reported any to me.

 If you run into any problems, try going back to .062.

It's only 9:00PM here. You should have the screenset files in your mail.

HA HA, fantastic service!! Thank you kindly... Now for some DUMB newbie questions.
1/  Where does the installer download the manual too?
2/ When I go to View/Screens; which file is the correct screen, as several are listed...2010-4.set, 2010-4x.set (what are these?

Told you they were dumb questions lol

1) Look in your Start menu. ( This was mentioned in the email I sent ;) ) Should be in your \Mach3\Documentation\ folder

2) I think the manual explains it, but the (x) versions have a larger diagnostic screen with space for extra LED's for the user to customize. 99% of users don't need these.

2010.set is the 3 axis screen, and 2010-4.set is the 4 axis version. The widescreen versions should be self explanatory

It sounds like you're somehow loading a different profile that doesn't have any motors enabled. All you have to do to change to the 2010 Screenset is go to View> Load Screens and select the .set file.

Yeah doing that. I noticed on the bottom right corner of the screen the green button is flashing oink. Could that mean anything?




Sorry its not flashing " oink"   :P   its flashing green/pink

Hello Gerry,
 I've been configuring your screen and noticed the RefAll sequence (M884.m1s) was different than the one I used.
This is your original:
------------------------
DoButton( 24 )
'Code "G53 G0 Z-1"
'While IsMoving()
'Wend
DoButton( 23 )
'Code "G53 G0 Y1"
'While IsMoving()
'Wend
DoButton(22)
'Code "G53 G0 X1"
'While IsMoving()
'Wend
--------------------------------

This is the one I inserted(replaced):

-------------------------------
DoButton( 24 )
'Code "G53 G0 Z-1"
'While IsMoving()
'Wend
refcombination( 19 )
-----------------------------------
Art had included this, I just used it.
Basically, all it does is Ref both X and Y axes simultaneously after first referencing Z.
It works as intended, but was just wondering if it will create problems anywhere else in your screen functions.

Thanks,
John(Bloy)
