How do you setup a extra page as a machine position DRO
« on: July 06, 2014, 04:16:55 PM »
I want to create a extra page in still screen set as a large displayed X, Y, Z, A axis DRO.
I'm comfortable with Mach3, but I'm new to screen designing.
Advice please.

After watching all the videos I still have not come up with a way on how to add a tab to a new page so I can have an exX, Y, Z and A. display with option zero out . I'm using the standard 1024.set Mach screen  if I delete  the contents of a screen then I'm able to create my large display. But I still have not found a way to add one more screen with a tab labeled DRO.

I haven't used Mach Screen very much, but it looks to be pretty simple to do what you want
Go to screen 0 and put your DRO page select button up at the top.
Then under screen, select New and call it 11 (next available one pops in automatically it seems).
Then build screen (page) 11 as you like.

Quick example ......
