Bug in mach3 ToolPath colours?
« on: November 26, 2019, 11:18:53 AM »
Is there a known bug in Mach3 ToolPath colour settings?

I prefer a light colour background rather than the default black.  If I set the background colour to white or other light colour and the other colours to suit that background (black for G1 for example) then when the ToolPath graphic is redrawn the tool path is shown for a guessed 0.5 secs then I just get a white screen.

It seems as if the white background is drawn first, then the lines for the other stuff such as the tool path are drawn but then it seems as if the background is redrawn over the top of everything, blanking it out.  This can be seen by going to a 50% grey, then the lines are only partially swamped out.  As black is defined as nothing then redrawing nothing over the image will have no effect, but redrawing white over everything will wash it out, which is what happens.

Is there a known fix or work around for this?
