Hello Madi,

In one release, that error message appeared in the Status bar. It shouldn't be there, but it is not actually reporting a current error. If you click the 'History' button and open that window, you'll see that no error messages have triggered. Hitting 'Clear' in that window will remove the message from the Status bar.

Apologies,
Bryanna

Madi,

Can you tell me more about what is happening with the DRO? I'm not sure what you mean by 'unstable'. You can create a copy of your profile by going to Help>Support>Package Current Profile. Then you can import that back into Mach4 and call it whatever you'd like. That status bar message is not something that affects the usefullness of the profile itself, it's just a label that got stuck. You can change it using the screen editor if you'd like it gone completely. I can send you an explanation on how to do that as well.

As for the 'Go to Work Zero' button, it needs to be customized. The default command behind that button is "G00 X0 Y0 A0" but it can be changed. One of our techs made a video on how to do that here: https://youtu.be/SZuEJn046Pw

Edit: I made a video (link below) showing another customer how to remove the label from the Status bar. If a real error message is being displayed, it will also appear in the 'History' window. In this customer's case, and in yours I suspect, you won't see the error message there. To delete the label from the Status bar, follow along with the video and you shouldn't see it again.

Best wishes,
Bryanna

Have a look in the vidieo section Daz the gas has done one that explains it very well and the reason why it’s there

Thank you for sharing that, I'll give it a watch. I had three users with questions about this just over the last two days, so I wanted to make something quick to show how to fix it. :)
