How do you alter the number of decimal places the DROs show?
« on: August 09, 2014, 12:48:56 AM »
Hi everyone...

My work does not need the precision of four decimal places on the DROs and watching four places slows me down. Can anyone tell me how to change it to 2..?

Best

You need to open the screenset in a screen editor and change the format of the DRO's.

Hi Chris,
  Open you screen .set with the Screen4 designer, double click on the dro and change the .4 as shown to .3 (or whatever you want), save and close.
Then restart Mach or reload the screen.

Are you using Mach3 or Mach4? I was assuming Mach3, since it's not in the Mach4 section.

Looks like at some point, this forum may need to be split into two sections. Right now 99% of it is Mach3, with one small subforum for Mach4.

Gerry and Russ

thanks, it will be a relief to make the screen less busy.  I will get right on to it.

Yes it is Mach 3.  

Thanks again, terrific to have the support...

I misread Russ's post. When I saw the 4 in Screen4, I was thinking that he was taking about Mach4.

I wondered about that too but when I went to the screen editors I saw it made sense for it to be 4 even for Mach3.

All fixed now, thanks for the help...
