Small changes to jog flyout
« on: June 09, 2013, 03:25:44 PM »
I've simplified the jog screen for my grandson to use. When you bring it up with the Tab key it comes up too far to the right. How can I move it to the right a little and keep it there?

Jog mode is a toggle. Any way to have two buttons, one to select continuous and one to select step?

Hit Tab to open.
Drag to where you want it.
Hit Tab to close it.
Tab again to open.
Drag again to where you want it.
Tab again to close it.
Close and Restart Mach3, and it should then stay where you want it.

Continuous mode is OEM Button 276
Step is 275

I should have responded by thanking you for the solution a long time ago!  You were correct that did it.  Another post here reminded me that I would like to make another change.  I don't like cycling through the step sizes in the jog flyout.  Is there a way to make separate buttons for each step distance? That would be so much more convenient.

Thanks,

Yes. Write a little macro to write the required increment to the Step increment DRO.
Like:
SetOEMDRO(1, .001)

Each button will have it's own macro.
