How to clear part programs in MDI screen
« on: January 03, 2012, 06:27:21 AM »
Hi there as somebody struggling to learn this program before my mill is being converting. I am enjoying it so far but as I am trying to input G codes clumsily I keep getting lines I want to remove, I have read the manual about load and saving but can't seem to easily delete the bad lines. Thanks for any help.

Hi,

you should be editing lines of g-code in notepad or wordpad and then loading them into mach3, if you then click on the edit-g-code button the code will be displayed in notepad.

MDI is only for entering single lines of g-code to be executed immediately after pressing the enter key.

Thanks for that Graham I'm really enjoying trying to learn Mach 3 and it's great that there is such a swift response, I'm sure i will be back with more questions but for now thanks a lot.
