Mach 3 won't jog with keyboard
« on: August 31, 2007, 07:16:18 PM »
Hi,
I'm been playing with the screen and now just as I get everything the way I like it, the keyboard won't jog anymore, it will still jog with the touchscreen , but not with  the keyboard.
Just to be sure I opened the editor and the arror keys move the tap around, so its not the keyboard, when checking the hot keys they are all set aswell....

Any ideas

Thanks
   Frank

You might have turned of the Jog button, or have it in another mode, such as MPG. Hit your tab key, this brings up the MPG pendant. Check to see if you are in cont.  jog mode there. Tab will close the MPG screen as well.

No that ain't it either, it will jog on the screen but not with the keyboard, if it is set to mpg it won't jog on the the screen, I also tried restting the hotkeys even though it already shwed the right numbers, I will try to post the screen set You can give it a try and see if You can get it to work.

The one thing I like to change , on the set up page remove the stop button in the jog section and substitude for the shift button, so I be able to toggle between fast and slow jogging, but what is the oem code for the shift button?

Not sure if this is your problem but when I made myself a screen set for my 12" touch screen I had

to cheat the system to get jogging working.

I did not want a button to turn jog on/off taking up precious screen real estate. 

I never want to not be able to keyboard jog.

It's a tight squeeze on 12" when you want large  buttons for fat fingers.  ;D

However I soon found that unless you have a jog on/off button on any particular page

then the keyboard jog won't work while using that page.

So what I did was make a jog on/off button that was 1 pixel by 1 pixel and hide it at

the very top left of screen and set it to "displays on all screens"

Now I can keyboard jog on any page but not have a useless button hogging screen space.
