This is quite odd, I was preparing the screen to send, and I passed it to a pen into the computer that is connected to the internet (from witch I am writing).
Just in case, to check if the screen can be loaded, I tested in this computer, and myself cannot reproduce the error (in this computer). The only thing I can think of is the resolution of the machine computer monitor, although does not make to much sense.

Here it is if anyone want to try. I have removed the images of the buttons and so on.

Thank you

Seems someone else has seen this toolpath issue but rather than it not show it seems its zoomed way out in the distance.
I do see the toolpath and the green lines when running, I have  no idea why its ok for me with a custom screen and not you, as said if you attached your screenset then maybe the difference could be seen and the issue resolved but looks like you are not wanting to so no probs from me.

Sorry about that, for some reason I didnt see your reply there. Will look and see if I can get the issue here but if you dont get it on another computer then it sounds xml related rather than screenset, or rather it sounds like xml in conjunction with screenset.

I get the toolpath with you screenset so it has to be xml related.

I am testing also here and I reached a small conclusion:

The error does not happen if:
If the toolpath window is more longer than taller (in my case it is the way around)
If the mach3 window is not fully maximized
If I load the gcode file with the standard turn screen set, then without closing the gcode file, load my screen set

I can only reproduce the error on monitors that are 1440x900, that was the resolution for witch the screen was made

The screen set was not changed (nor the .xml), only the mach3 version.

Reading my post, I feel quite unlucky as it seams there are more things that prevents the error than those that are probably causing it !

Brian has just found the problem. It has to do with the latest fix to softlimits he did. You will see normal preview unless your work coordinates are zeroed way off the machine zero. Preview seems to follow machine zero.

Hopefully will get fixed soon ;) .

Thank you!

The tool path display during execution is also not correct (not coincident with the preview one). Please see picture attached. It might help.

That was a problem I told Brian about when I tested the test version with softlimits fix he sent me, looks like he did not do anything about it then.
