Interesting idea. We will have it hooked into Mach4, so you can directly load the file into M4. You w il also be able to enter values into the grid for the polyline, so you can do a CopyCat like function- move the M4 axis around, just click a button and the X,Y values will load into the grid.

Lots more coming, just got to work in my retired time frames, and when I can get some time from Brian for the harder parts.

Being that the WISS is independant from M4 you cannot depend on having M4 available. An internal simulator would be best.

Just an opinion, I never found the Grid to be very useful.  Direct keyboard input is the way to go for numerical values.  Normally you have a print that is INCREMETAL in nature   

G1 XxYx   is very easy and does NOT require a mouse.

One other thing could you make it NON mouse friendly (hotkeys or Tab order)
