DRO's keyboard entry gone
« on: April 03, 2013, 05:11:06 PM »
Hi,

All of a sudden I can't enter numbers from the keyboard into the Axis DRO's.  Only a mouse-user keyboard pane/pain.  How do I get that functionality back and what did I do to lose it?

Much thanks,

MikeF2

Have you recently upgraded to Ver 066 or 067? I have had that issue in Turn with these versions.
The other thing it could be is you are viewing machine coords, if that is the case then the numbers will be getting entered just you wont see them as you are not viewing work coords.

Up top, under OPERATOR, is Auto Calculator checked ?
If so, un-check it.

Hurray!  Yes, that (auto-calculator toggle) did it.  Makes me wish I would have registered a couple months ago.  Thanks a lot Russ.
