last used screen not reloading at startup
« on: February 07, 2020, 09:50:29 AM »
Hello Chaps,
I have a screen called "fredlath" which is the screen i would like Mach3 to load automatically at startup.
in fact when mach starts up it loads a screen called "fredslathe" which is incorrect - then i have to agree to terms of usage each time.
I have tried deleting "fredslathe.xml" from c:\mach3  but it still finds it somewhere and loads it. thereafter it is in c:\mach3 again.
It never used to do this but now it is a nuisance.
please give me advice how to get it to load the correct screen at startup.
many thanks

fred evans

Hi Fred,

Within Mach3 select View / Load Screens then select the screen .set of your choice.
Close Mach3.
Next time Mach3 is run it will show the screen you have chosen.

hello tweakie, thanks for responding.
yes that is how it used to work- but now it is not doing that.

Hi Fred,

It works that way for me so maybe something has happened to your Mach3 installation.

The only other thing I can suggest is to re-load Mach3 over the top of your existing installation and see if that corrects the problem (make a secure backup of your existing Mach3 folder first).
