Remove BKSPACE from Hotkeys
« on: October 20, 2017, 11:32:40 AM »
Hello, i have a few questions about some hotkeys and some minor stuff that may be silly, but for me it isn't:

1) Given the title, we're so used to press BKSPACE to erase some wrong typed characters that i do that so often
and my emergency goes on. Is there a way to remove this shortcut to ESTOP from the BKSPACE ?

2) If there is a way, can we also erase characters we type like... in MDI ?

3) Also my resolution is 1080p(Monitor), MACH3 window seens just so weird and small, is there a way to make it better?

I think for now, this is more urgent.

Hi

What screenset are you using?

As far as I know uses the screenset 1024.set ESC for reset. Did you change any hotkey settings?

About your screen size issue. Did you try Mach3's config menu -> General Config "Auto Screen Enlarge"? Don't forget to reload the screen after changing Mach3's window size.

About your issue "BS resetting Mach3".
To turn off BS resetting Mach3 do the following:

start Mach3 with your profile VRNIKA
use menu Config -> Ports and Pins -> Input Signals
scroll down to EStop
click the Hotkey field in the EStop line
click top right button X to close window. This will remove the BS value

About your resolution issue
the screenset 1024.set has a display ratio of 4 : 3. If you are using a monitor with a ratio of 16 : 9 Mach3 stretches the dimensions to fill the screen. This will result in a loss of X and Y relation. If want to keep the ratio you can use MachScreen V1.68
use menu Options -> Resize Page
click Select All
select User defined of Page Size
specify Pixel hor and Pixel Vert
click OK
save the screen
