Adding hotkeys for axis movement to mach default screen?
« on: November 11, 2013, 01:55:45 PM »
I have modified my default Mach screen (1024) by adding an additional Page that contains additional functions including some Cypress Basic functions. I noticed that the Left/Right/Up/Down keyboard keys do not "job" my mill's axis when my custom page is displayed, whereas they do function on some of the other Mach3-privided pages. I was thinkng that these hotkeys were global but apparently they are not.

Is it possible to "expand the range" of the hotkeys that are present on the first Mach3 screen (page 1) so that they will function on my additional page (page 61) as well?

Just add a jog on/off button to the page and they'll work.
