Questions about hotkeys and keyboard assignments
« on: April 19, 2011, 08:39:09 PM »
Hi,
I would like to configure my machine so that I can use the keyboard for "RESET", also I would like to be able to keyboard position data into X,Y, and Z without having to first click on the fields of them as well.

I have opened the hotkeys config and it makes no sense to me, could someone help me with this please?

Thanks,
Scott Sutton

The default key for Reset is "`". (Above the tab key)

To set hotkey for DRO's (and to change default hotkeys for other buttons), you need to use a screen designer. That's where Hotkeys are set.
Config >Hotkeys is mainly for setting Jog keys.
You can use it to select DRO's. and toggle through them with the arrow keys, but I just tried it with mixed results.

Thanks!
Can you tell me about Screen designer? Does that come with Mach or is it an addon?

I use Screen4, but a lot use Klaus' Machscreen. There's also the old Screen3.
