.txt files

I create all my gcode files with notepad and they all have .txt extensions. Can I have Mach3 see them when I choose the load file button?

When loading g-code, click the "File Type" dropdown and select .txt or "all files", and then open your .txt file. After you close and restart Mach3, it will only show .txt files.

When you LOAD a file select from the pop up box which extension you want to see or ALL to see everything.

That's funny because that is what I do.

I always just drop down the box and select all files.

But, when I reopen Mach, it's always back the same way.

Hi,

hit load file.
then in the first lane ( filename ) type in   *.txt and hit enter.
