Up and running, but need a little "button help"
« on: July 08, 2014, 11:46:49 AM »
I have finally got my machine up and running,(Hurco 3 axis mill), I have everything pretty much configured, and have done some test cuts, I have a little problem though, with a hot key issue,  the "@" symbol toggles E-Stop on and off, I hit it by accident and of course lost position.
I have been in the ports and pins and set all the hotkeys to zero and have not configured anything in the hokey menu, they are all still at the default 999 setting.
I did have my E-stop hotkey as the space bar when I was testing the machine a few months ago, but have now removed that function, just this "@" symbol issue.
Can anyone advise me what the issue is - could I be doing something daft ???

Are you using a custom screenset or have you altered the standard screenset? Could be you have set the Hotkey for the Reset to the @ key from within the screenset.

Hi Hood, no, I am using the standard screen screenset, I am also using a storm 2200 keyboard like the one you have...
Cant figure this out, I did have a dialog box pop up unexpected, it said something about hidden script editor or something like that, I just closed it down again, not sure if that is related or not ???

Can you zip your xml, your macro folder and the screenset you are using and attach here. I will see if I can find your problem.

Thanks Hood,  I have attached the zip files, I dont think I have modified the screenset at all, but I did start the project 18 months ago so not too sure

regards

Ok I see what your problem is, the default HotKey for the Reset button is ' rather than @ but they share the same key on a keyboard, just the @ requires the shift key also.
Anyway that hotkey is set in the screenset, to disable you will need to open the screenset in one of the screen designers and disable it.
