Why can't I get full screen ?
« on: September 23, 2011, 02:07:01 PM »
I 've been using Mach for a number of years on a CNC mill I built , and never had any issues getting it full screen.
I'm in the process of building a CNC plasma table, and have just downloaded on a different computer but cannot for the life of me get it full screen. Also, the text is not as crisp as the one on my mill.
I have searched here as well as Google, but can't find an answer.
Thanks

BTW, I did go into General Config, and made sure that "auto screen enlarge" was checked off.

Can you attach your xml and also what screen resolution is your monitor?

You can attach here, use the additional options button on the reply page. You will likely need to copy your xml then rename as the forum will only accept an attached file with a unique name so if you try with one that has been posted before you will get a message telling you.

All I've done so far was download mach and install my license, so the .xml file should be the way I downloaded it.

Its loading fine full screen here. 1024 x 768 is the default screen size so maybe try unchecking the auto enlarge option although I dont see how that would be the problem :(
Try loading a different screenset just in case there is an issue with your actual screenset but the xml is fine.

I am wondering if the last time you shut Mach down you had the screen size mimimised and then when you restarted Mach you put it to full screen but it didnt fill the screen? If thats the case then simply shutting Mach down with the screen maximised and restarting should fix it.

Well, That was weird !!
I tried to open "mach3Mill", with the round icon and it opened in small screen.
I opened mach 3 loader, then mach mill and it opened in large screen.
I tried to re open "plasma", now it opens in large screen !!
Actually, now everything opens in large screen !!
I'm confused, but happy  ;D
I guess I'll never know now what happened  ???
Thanks for your help !!

Something must have been screwed up, because now all the text is fine. Before, it was kinda hard to read, and some of the letters only showed half !!
