Do I have a problem
« on: September 07, 2014, 01:59:36 PM »
When on the Program Run page, my my keyboard short cut keys ( the 4 arrow key and I am using A and Z for Z axes ) work to move the DRO and the motor run. If I go to the Tool Path page they stop working. I can hit the TAB key and the jog screen appears and the mouse can be used to move the motors. If I go to the diagnostics page, the hot keys work fine for moving the motor and DRO. Is this the way it works or do I  have something set wrong? The reset button is green. Using a Dell machine, with XP and Mach 3.   ???

You cannot jog with the keyboard from a page that does not have the jog enable LED on it.

I looked at the Tool path page, I did not find anyplace to turn on the Jog LED , is that correct? So you are saying that you can not use key board short cut keys on the Tool Path page?

You could use one of the screen designers to add the Jog  enable LED to that page and it will work.

Thanks to all that replied.
I have been resisting learning about screens, the learning curve for this hobby is steep. CAD, CAM, Mach 3  and G_Code. I just did not want to learn one more thing. I have been reading this forum for some time and kept seeing Screen were the answer to many problems or questions.
I did not know what is was, now I do. I am going to post a little of what I learned.
Again thanks
