You should be able to use Screen4 to add a button to do this, I have just looked at the Mach2 screenset and the button for multipass is a button with VB script in it. If you add a button to Mach3 screenset (1024.set) you can choose to have it as a VB button and save it. Then when you go into Mach you should see the button you have created, go to the "Operator" tab then down to "Edit Button script". The new button should now be flashing, click on it and paste the the text below. Test it out with care as I have not tried it. You may also want to add the DROs that are present in the Mach2 screen.

REM Context 10002
repeats = Question ("How many iterations?")
depth    = Question ("Maximum depth in first pass?")
perpass = Question ("Amount to drop on each pass?")

SetOEMDro  80, depth
SetOEMDro  78, repeats
SetOEMDro  79, perpass
DoOEMButton 218

There is a multi pass wizard that works much better then the old way of doing it :)

Fixing problems one post at a time ;)

Look in the downloads section, Screen Designer.
