Sometimes running Gcode editor on a OPEN file it will CLOSE back down before you can select the file you want to work with.

Macro file generation
« Reply #91 on: May 20, 2014, 04:13:58 AM »
build 1767-2 (Win7 x64)

1. Error message when compiling macro files.
Steps:
  • Delete all pre-compiled .mcc files in macro folder of Mach4Mill profile. There should be 4 macro files remaining (M3, M4, M5, M6).
  • Start Mach4
  • Mach4 complains with a error message that it cannot open/stat precompiled files.
  • All *.mcc files have been generated by the time the window shows up.
Expected behaviour: Mach4 compiles all macros and keeps silent (no error message, because files are generated anyway).

Please see screenshot below. As you can see, path does not contain any special chars or spaces.

2. Unable to use macros in recently created profile.
Steps:
  • Create a new profile called "test", screen is "wxMach.set"
  • Close Mach4 after successful start.
  • Copy all macro source scripts (*.mcs) from Mach4Mill profile to test profile (subdirectory Macros).
  • Start Mach4
  • Cannot use any of the macros, nor are they compiled into .mcc during start-up.
Expected behaviour: Mach4 compiles all macros in test profile.

RRO (rapid rate over ride) does not seem to work with the buttons or keyboard arrow keys. Works well with G0 moves though.

IF inside of a G65 macro and you hit STOP it locks up mach4 and you have to use task manager to kill the process to escape.

The highlight feature inside the Gcode Editor has stopped working.

That is because I don't like metric and I go mad!  :)  Seriously though, we are aware of it and we are working on it.

KB Jogging "Joystick" style.
Arrows:
UP, then
UP and RIGHT, then (keeping RIGHT key held)
RIGHT, then
Right and DOWN

Locks out the CONTROL Group and the File Ops until shutdown and restarted.

Gcode editor has a glitch where SOME gcode files load showing the highlights working and SOME load with hightlights NOT working.

I have not been able to find the ryme or reason behind it YET.

The highlights are DARN handy when working in Conditional Gcode.
