rotate the toolpath display
« on: December 03, 2011, 02:00:13 PM »
Hello All

The manual says that i can rotate the toolpath display.
I can get it to zoom and i can get it to pan-

but how do i get it to rotate.

Left click and drag in it. Hold down the left mouse button while dragging

Normal mouse assignments are

Left  >>>   Oribital pan (rotate)

Center >>  ZOOM

Right   >> XY pan

Yours may be different . Try the other buttons one at a time.

Rotate was even present way back in Mach2 days so why you cant get it I dont know unless it is Turn you are trying to do it in?

thanks Hood -
Just needed to get a bit more comfortable with mach3 turn - so thats why i am only coming back to this now

I have found that the difference is that my left bouse button and the wheel do the same thing

could you tell me where and how to configure these buttons.

(  If its complicated and a lot of typeing if you would just point me to the section in the manual
and i will read it up myself)

Its not complicated or a lot of typing ;) they are not configurable and Left mouse/drag does the same as scroll wheel  in Turn.
