screen coordinates
« on: July 13, 2011, 07:25:57 PM »
I have a problem with sometimes my system stops. As a quick fix - I just want to close and reopen MACH3 to have the same coordinates from when I close and re-open MACH3 back to the same position where it last stopped.

Thanks -
Keith

Persistent DRO's in General Config?

I found "Lock DRO's to setup units"

is that it?

When I close MACH3 it always ask "Fixtures Save?" - What does that do?

Thanks!!!!

I checked the "Lock DRO's to setup units"
Saved Setting
And clicked NO for fixture saved and MACH3 was not at the same coordinates when I opened it. It always seems random.

Bottom right corner of General Config, Persistant DRO's.

Fixture Save is asking to D=Save the Offsets. You can turn it off by unchecking "Optional Offset Save".

That worked!!! :) Thank you!!! It does not ask the fixture save question and it saves the coordinates.

Thanks
