Hi Kenneth,

in the picture mach3.png the red led's are using Bitmaps, while in the picture screen.png there are no Bitmaps used. Could it be the referenced bitmap files lie in different directories?

Hi Kenneth,

please check following Settings in       Options -> Settings -> Generic prog Settings :
is the button "Report missing files" checked? If so, does a Message box pop up, when you load the screenset in MachScreen?
Is the "User defined image path" field empty?

"report missing image files" is checked. and no warning about missing file
pops up when loading file. had that before.

Hi Kenneth,

How about:
Is the "User defined image path" field empty?

Hi Kenneth,

please clear that field. If this field is empty, you will have the same look in Mach3 and MachScreen
